Find out all about the New Zealand Haka right here.

The New Zealand Haka is a traditional Maori chant. It can be performed for various reasons, such as a greeting or welcome to friends or guests, or as an acknowledgement of a special event or achievement. It is often performed for visiting dignitaries at official government events.

There are various forms of the Haka, including the tutu, the whakatu waewae, and the peruperu.

The Haka may be performed by women, groups, and even children.

The Haka is most commonly performed by a group, and usually involves loud chanting, exaggerated facial expressions, and slapping of hands against various parts of the body.

It is used extensively at Maori functions and before sporting events, usually by the national team.

The peruperu (war Haka) was originally performed by Maori before battle, as a demonstration of their power and intent.

Probably the most recognised form of the Haka is performed by the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team, who vigorously perform it before every match, as a challenge to their opponents. With a raucous crowd, and a great rugby team, I'm sure that many visiting teams have been intimidated by the Haka over the years.

Watching the All Blacks perform the Haka is an exciting, emotional experience for New Zealanders, who are very proud of their national team.
