70. Po-ai-pu-ni - Blind Man's Buff.
[Page 233] Children clasp hands in a ring, within which one stands blindfolded. The children dance around, and as they dance the ma-ka-po or "blind-man" catches one and then tries to guess who it is. Ellis1 says that in Tahiti tupaurupauru, a kind of blind-man's-buff, was a favorite juvenile pastime, and Williams2 mentions blind-man's-buff in Fiji.
