Ki-O-Rahi | Traditional Maori Game on Trans World Sport

Ki-O-Rahi contains elements similar to those found in Rugby Union, Australian Rules, Touch Rugby and Handball. Two teams of seven compete on a circular field which is divided into zones. Points are scored by touching the pou, or boundary markers, and by hitting a central target known as the tupu. Ki-O-Rahi has been passed down the generations and is bound up in Maori legend, or purakau.
