Kiko (Course content)

On this page you can download PDF versions of the zines (booklets) given out in class, as well as word documents of the kēmu (games) played in class. Click the link to download the item, and you can then save or print it if you wish. I normally have spare copies of the zines in class so please ask for another copy in class before printing one yourself.
