Poi spinning came from New Zealand. The Poi was first used by the Maori women.
The following two quotes are from Home of Poi-a company based in New Zealand that started back in 1998. They have dedicated themselves to teaching and spreading the word of Poi along with making a successful business. Their site is a nice place to visit over and over.
The Poi chant was a graceful, fluid dance involving the rhythmic manipulation and gentle tapping of the poi, a fibre ball attached to a plaited cord.

My son Jeremy spins poi. He learned it about 10 years ago and loves it.
He has chains with rope that he dips in lighter fluid then spins them.
He took two of these photos for his engagement photos along with his other pictures. They were taken by a professional photographer, Chrissy from Vitalicphoto. I love the one with his fiance sitting in front of him.
Thailand has a full moon party on the beach somewhere Jeremy went. They had lots of fire spinners there that spun all night long, or so I’ve heard.
