Pitcairn Island Today
Today there are little over 50 people living on Pitcairn Island. They live in a communal village style in houses that are a combination of European and Tahitian architecture. Provisions not grown or manufactured on Pitcairn are brought in by sea, as there are no aircraft landing facilties. The main form of income is the sale of native crafts. The Seventh Day Adventist religion plays a large part in the lives of the islanders. The island is a territory of Great Britain, and is governed from New Zealand.
To this day, Pitcairn remains one of the most isolated habited places on earth. Since Pitcairn lies outside the normal shipping navigation paths, contact with the island is sporadic at best. Travel to Pitcairn is very difficult, and there are no facilities for tourists. Pitcairn visitors must obtain arrange to stay with native families, and written permission from the government is required to visit the island. There is no television on Pitcairn, and limited telephone service. Mail to and from Pitcairn is very slow. Ham radio appears to be the most reliable form of communication with Pitcairn Island.
