The "stick game" looks very challenging. I am amazed at how good you guys are!
Wow that's really cool , how did you stay on beat the whole time. I have never seen th Raukau Stick game before. We have never done
your games are very diffent than ours.
The sticks remind me of the hand clap. I am facinated by how fast you can do it.I bet it takes months to learn.
The stick game seems like so much fun. I have never heard of such a game. You'll are so good at it and I would love to try it.
It must have taken lots of practice to do that.It is very interesting.
Wow, that is amazing how you can play that game that well. You must have to practice alot.
I like the way the beat whent. What are the Reukau stick are made of.
Here in the United States a lot of girls to a hand game just like that but without sticks. In the US it gets really boring to watch but it is so much better with sticks!!!
Your stick games look great and looks pretty hard to learn.
This game looked very cool, because of the way yall kept rythem. Was it hard to learn this game?
The stick game looks tremendously hard, it looks like it takes a lot of practice.
WOW! I love the musical performance of Rolling On The River! It was amazing vocals! What made me love it more was that I live in Memphis and that song is about the Mississippi River which runs right through downtown Memphis.
I thought the Maori Raukau Sticks was awesome because I love music that doesn't come from a guitar or drums or any instrument that is newer. It has a more effective sound when you play with something that is older. It soothes my soul to hear that kind of music. Plus it's a game and who doesn't like games? I think it is great that your making learning fun in your classroom.
Does it take very long for you to learn all the steps for this game?
