'O'o ihe is a traditional Hawaiian game that involves spear throwing, historically used both as a sport and as a training exercise for warriors. The game requires participants to throw a spear, known as an 'ihe, at a target, often a banana trunk or a rolled-up mat. The aim is to develop and demonstrate accuracy, strength, and skill in spear throwing. This game was an important aspect of Hawaiian martial arts and was practiced by both the ali'i (nobility) and the maka'ainana (commoners). It played a significant role in preparing warriors for battle and was also a popular competitive sport during festivals and gatherings in ancient Hawaii.
