To which country does Easter Island belong?
The Easter Island Heads bring historians and travelers alike to the South Pacific island, just as they have for hundreds of years. These massive stone statues gaze at the open ocean that separates the island from the remainder of the world. They've stood their silent vigil for over 400 years. The island officially belongs to Chile, but the island sits 2,200 miles away. Easter Island is more closely in sync culturally with the other Polynesian islands than it is South America. The island natives have two official languages: the eastern Polynesian language Rapa Nui and Spanish, which was imported from Chile. Source: IExplore.com
