The origins of the haka are deeply rooted in the mists of time. It is
a history rich in folklore and legend that reflects Maori heritage.
New Zealand has grown up immersed in haka since first
encounters between Maori and early European explorers,
missionaries and settlers.
While recent tradition suggests the haka was the domain of men
exclusively, legends power of female sexuality.
According to legend, the haka was derived from the sun of God,
Ra. He had two wives: Hine-raumati, who was the essence of
summer, and Hine-takurua, the essence of winter.
Ra and Hine-raumati lay together and gave birth to a son called
Tanerore. On hot summer days it is possible to see the light
dancing. Legend has it that this is Hine-raumati's son, Tanerore,
performing for his mother an the wiriwiri or trembling shimmer is
today reflected in the trembling of the haka performer's hands.
Maori myths and legends are peppered with stories about the
