Written in te reo Māori and English by Tangaroa Paul | illustrated by Rebecca Gibbs

Rangi loves doing haka but performing poi is his favourite — even though his classmates say it’s just for girls. When the lead poi performer falls sick before a school performance, Rangi has to take her place. 

How will the other students and audience react – ‘Surely a boy can’t lead the poi?’ But asRangi steps on stage, the familiar movements of poi take him from scared and unsure to standing as his authentic self.

Rere Atu Taku Poi is an uplifting story about gender fluidity and the power of poi.
