Make a Porotaka

Make a Porotaka

Have you ever wondered how a porotaka is made?

To make a porotaka you will need two strips of flax at least 30 centimetres long. The strips should both be the same width.

These are the steps you need to follow:
1. Fold strip A
2. Place strip B inside the fold of strip A.
3. Weave strip B around strip A as shown.
4. Pull the four ends tightly to form a square. Trim the blades so they are all  the same length.
5. Nail or pin it to a stick.
