Author polypride808 ( ago)

Author Louisa Te'i ( ago)
here in hawaii i guess they call them poi balls - to differentiate from the
hawaiian poi that you eat. but at home in aotearoa, they're just POI. yep,
the next whakataetae is in october but for kids groups only. hope u can
still come watch.

Author polypride808 ( ago)
oh sorry i waz alwaiz told it waz called poi balls da wakataetae
competition at da polynesian culture center we did da long & short pois in
our ruotine. i really want to go to da nex wun but mai group iz focusing on
samoan fire knife ryte now. but we will be bak at that competition soon:)
thank u! & dont worry u jess need practice & u will be really good:)

Author Louisa Te'i ( ago)
good 4 u! do u do long or short? most poly groups in hawaii do long. for
comps we usually do short coz there is so much more you can do. i suck at
the poi. u should know, they're not poi BALLS - just poi!! keep it up and
maybe you can come join the next competition.
