I Didn’t Know by Bennett Gordon

I didn’t know that Samoan men would use poi balls to strengthen their wrists for war.  Also I didn’t know that Samoan women used poi balls to strengthen their wrists for knitting and weaving.  I thought poi balls were used just for entertainment.  So next time you see a Samoan person with poi balls, remember that back in the day, it was to help the people prepare and strengthen.
