The haka is the traditional dance of the New Zealand Maori. It is a group posture dance with vigorous body movements, feet stamping and rhythmically shouted war dance words.

Not all haka are war dances, however, and some are performed by women and children.

The haka we are familar with is normally performed before matches by the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team. However it is now more commonly used as a welcome to New Zealand for VIPs visiting this wonderful country
