Ki O Rahi

                             Ki O Rahi

The game Ki O Rahi is a traditional maori game based on the purakau (Legend) of Rahituta and his wife Tiarakurapakewai......

I myself havenever played Ki O Rahi as a Maori rangatahi O Aotearoa after reading and watching this game i would like to learn to play this game.Ki O Rahi is quite a popular game throughout New Zealand especially in smaller and rural communities,also different iwi have different rules but still very play the game you would need 
*x1 Tupu (drum/barrell)
*x7 Nga pou (padded poles)
*x1 Ki O Rahi ball
*heaps of field marking cones/or/spray paint
 for ki o rahi is a huge circle made with the marker and inside that circle a smaller circle and inside that another smaller circle and in the very center of the inside smaller circle sits the tupu (barrel) there are all different names for each area within the circle 
so the whole objective to Ki O Rahi is like most field sports or any sport really which is to gain more points on the opposite team team with the most points wins the game........
So the next time my family get together i will suggest that we play Ki O Rahi because my big brothers and sisters know how to play it but they haven't played it since they were kids they said so it would be cool to learn from my siblings...

  1. Hi Freedom!

    My name is Ellee, I am another part of the Summer Learning Journey Crew that is commenting on your blogs this summer.

    This looks like a really complicated game...but also lots of fun! From the picture it kind of looks like a mixture of capture the flag and dodgeball...?
    I think this would be an amazing game to play in school for a class tournament! You could get all of the classes in your year level to battle it out for Ki O Rahi champion!

    Thank you for sharing this really cool game Freedom, are there any other sports/games you really enjoy?

    Keep up the awesome work with your blog, its looking great and I love the colourful writing!
