Is your class or school up for a collaborative challenge?
We have been challenged to record the footage of us singing and dancing to Poi E - the waiata track from 'Boy'.
If you join in and send us the footage, we could make a really cool multi-school version. Get in on the fun - make poi, learn the song and work out your moves. Record the whole song and try to be creative. Let's see what we can do as a team! Leave us a comment if you are up to the challenge.
Here are the instructions on how to make a poi:
- from Awakeri School
- from the Auckland Museum
Or you could visit our favourite Mellville Intermediate.... they have heaps of Maori Language Week links - including how to make a poi. Check them out!
