View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Poi, as performed by Maori women for centuries, is one of Polynesia's most graceful art forms. In the first book to be published on the subject, expert Ngamoni Huata looks at its origina and spiritual importance. Early accounts of poi performances are included, along with descriptions of how poi are made and how to perform the actions. Song texts to accompany poi performances are given, in Maori and English, with photographs and line drawings complementing the text. This comprehensive book is both a source of cultural information and a practical handbook for anyone wanting to learn how to perform poi. Ngamoni Huata (Te Arawa, Mataatua, Tainui) is one of New Zealand's leading exponents of poi, and grew up in the tourist village of Whakarewarewa. A frequent judge at the Aotearoa Maori Performing Arts Festivals, she still performs regularly.
