Posted:So, if you were strandeed on a deserted island, what would you spin? Coconut poi, of course! I took a recent trip south and brought back a few coconuts for the peeps up north. We were husking them at a party where we were also spinning poi, and I wondered if the husk could be used to make poi. Sure enough, it can! next ten pictures in this series are acrually burning coconut husks soaked in kerosene!We also got some good pics of sparkley poi:!!!!-p.
