Playing Games

My favourite game was Ki o Rahi because there was more information and it looked like the people wanted to get points for their team. There are two teams to play Ki ORahi, Kiioma and Taniwha. 

Kīoma score by touching Pou/s with the Kī (the ball then running the Kī through and placing it down in to convert pou touches into points.

One rule is that if the ball goes out of bounds the last person in possession has to pass it over to the other team. And another rule is Kiioma scores by touching the ground and then they kick off.

This picture is an original Ki.

  1. Hey Kauri,

    This is Jade C from the Summer Learning Journey blogging team. It's awesome to be here to read and comment on your blog post!

    I've never seen or heard of the game 'Ki o Rahi' but it kind of reminds me of rugby or touch. I think that the ball is very interesting, I wonder what it is made out of! I can see the flax outside but I wonder if it's empty inside or there is something inside to fill the ball? What do you think? Have you played this game with that ball before?

    I hope to hear back from you!
