Poi Rakau

My Reflection

I did an activity where my group and me were told to research Traditional Maori Games and retell the game and type it in your own words. We needed to also write the history of the game. Our Game was called Poi Rakau. Poi Rakau is another way of saying 'Stick Games'. There are two ways of playing this game and both are very fun.
