    • New Zealand Rugby has for many years been famous for performing the tribal Haka routine and it has become a true part of their culture
    • Performed historically by Maoris going into battle or as a celebration of historical events
    • Haka is the term used for all Maori dance
    • There are several different styles of Haka – the All Blacks use a version of the Ka Mate. Ka Mate is a short free-form haka which is performed without weapons and is therefore not a war dance

    • In 2006 we engaged with several Primary Schools within the Town to celebrate 100 years of international Rugby League.
    • Local dance tutors visited all of the schools and taught the students the history, meaning and Origins of the Haka.
    • Pupils were taught a basic set phrase of the Haka for them to rehearse for the upcoming performance.
  • 5.
    • Schools were then given the skill set to choreograph their own sequences of Haka movements based on their school or area.
    • Over 100 young people across the Town joined on the pitch at the Centenary International Match to perform their own Haka performance piece to crowds of over 12,000 people.
    • The young people chose their own costumes representing their school or the town and painted their faces in the traditional Maori style.
