About Natsan Natsan (or natively Hāoka) is an a posteriori conlang which is inspired by the Polynesian languages of Oceania and the pacific. It is heavily influenced by Māori, Hawaiian, Samoan and a little by Tongan and Emae. I intended to create this using languages I was very unfamiliar with but was attracted to: it is particularly the vowel-consonant relationship in these languages which attracted me to them.

Natsan was adopted by English speakers as the name of Hāoka due to a miscommunication between native speakers and English colonisers, colonisers asked what language the indigenous hāoka people spoke and pointed at their mouth/tongue as if to gesture language or speech. To which the indigenous people replied "Na Tsani? (The tongue?) - leading the language to mistakenly, being referred to as Natsan.
