Melville Intermediate - How to make Maori Poi

video
This lesson is a description and the step by step instructions on how to create or make a Maori Poi for Maori cultural dances.   This is created by Annalize, Holly and Fauiki.   They go through the equipment that you need to create a Poi, and the steps that you need to create one.   This is the first half of two lessons the second of which will be uploaded tomorrow.  Thanks to Matua Michael for his help.

  1. Thanks for sharing these instructions. Maybe some of my students should have a go at making them before we come to NZ in October.

  2. Awesome footage! Well done. I love seeing what is being done. It is so much easier to have a go at something if you see others doing it. I look forward to seeing more lessons!!!

  3. What a fantastic introduction, girls! I love this set of instructions - you have included the aim, list of materials and clear instructions by "showing"... I love your linking words as well (first, secondly). The scoopers are going to use this next term to help them make their poi... You have made a fantastic teaching tool - thanks so much! I look forward to the next instalment!

    I have to say you are a real pro at plaiting!

  4. I am from the United States and your teacher pointed out this post to me. I enjoyed watching your video. It can be especially hard to be in a video when you are not talking. Well done to everyone. I have no idea what a Maori Poi is supposed to look like or why it is used. I'll have to come back to see the rest of your videos. Thank you for sharing your work. I will show it to my students when school resumes in September. It is a fantastic example of good student video work!

  5. I enjoyed watching the video. I could tell the students are not yet used to speaking to a camera like it is the audience. It can be really intimidating. I think the students spoke with excellent volume and enunciated the words well. Good job!
