What is the Haka?
According to the source, the haka is a Maori war dance or challenge. Haka are typically performed in groups and reflect a tribe’s pride, strength, and solidarity. To accompany a loud chant, actions include foot stomping, tongue protrusion, and repetitive body slapping. A haka’s words generally describe ancestors and events in the tribe’s past in a poetic manner. The haka was traditionally performed when two parties met as part of the conventions surrounding meetings.
