Posted:Thank you for the help , But it doesn't look like they actually have books just on the poi. I have a lost friend that knows hawiian poi and thought I might ask her if I find her, if you are also interested I will let you know what moves are traditional. if you find anymore I appriciate it. I saw the one in detroit, but alas no money or time. I did e-mail them to find out if she would tell me the traditional moves, but they have not written me back if you find anymore, let me know, I will do the same for you.

Posted:Thanks Molly,

I haven't found Polenesian Poi in New York City and I'd love to get the history/culture aspect of it. I got firetwirling streetkids up to my ears, but no actual traditional poi. I'm still passively looking...
