Pitt islanders

There is only two ways you can become a Pitt Islander: be born there, or buried there.

Successsive generations of Celine's family have lived on the Island and Celine can safely call herself a Pitt Islander.

Sadly, the island has a dwindling population. From its heydey in the early 1900s with a population of over 50, to 2012 and a static population of around 30 people.
