ROOM 4 ARE OFFICAL
‘POI MAKING EXPERTS.”
This term we have been looking at different symbols and their meanings in Maori.
We started off by asking ourselves:
What is a Poi?
What do they symbolize?
We learnt that the Poi was used in the olden days to help make the men’s wrist stronger and to help them with their co-ordination.
“I liked making my Poi myself and learning how to use it.”
- “I learnt all about the meaning of the Poi.”
