Haka is a Maori tribal war dance. The most well known Haka 'Ka Mate' was performed by Te Rauparaha war leader of Ngati Toa tribe. He was hiding from Ngati Maniapoto and Waikato tribesman trying to kill him.

Many teams in New Zealand perform Haka before they play rugby or league and alot are specific to their teams or have reference to local tribes.

I reckon that&#39;s subjective... As much as I like the new one, there was just something so spine chilling about the way Tana started that one in 2004. I also think that the original Haka has a better rythym to it (if that makes sense), and seems to flow more naturally.

That makes perfect sense and I fully agree. I love watching Tana in that haka, he looks like some kind of orc warrior.

Hi Gunner!

there are also other pacific nations that plays a sort of haka before their Rugby match:Tonga&#39;s Islands plays kailao ,Samoa Siva Tau, Fiji plays Cibi.
When these teams play a rugby match one against the other, they often plays their Hakas before the match coincidentally, it&#39;s a great pleasure to see it.
The Haka is also performed by some other New Zealand national teams, such as the Kiwis (rugby league) and the Tall Blacks (men&#39;s basketball); even the NZ&#39;s Army have a personal haka.


bye!

PS: During the WC, Italy doesn&#39;t face the haka following a coach&#39;s instruction, in other internaltional matches Italy honoured all Blacks facing thei dance. B)

My opinion: each command should have the HAKA

I actually enjoy the Haka but if I was playing against the AB`s(fat chance) I dont think I would be too keen. IMO it gives too much time and respect to the all blacks without giving anything to the opposition. Now if all the All Blacks were Maori`s I wouldnt have any problem with it as its a cultural issue.

I see what you mean and often think about it myself. I do love it and hope it never leaves but sometimes I do feel as though it is a bit of a distraction.

As far as I know though all players who face it get as much out of it as the AB&#39;s do themselves. Must be awesome to face, would pump you up no matter what.

No I think it&#39;s every Springbok&#39;s dream to face the haka, and really I think it adds more to the game then it distracts, it&#39;s the ultimate intro to a rugby match.

just look at this video

Kamate vs. Sipi tao (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VW9nLK5PHqg)

look at how much it fires up the crowd, brilliant.

The Springboks in 1926 used to do a war dance and Jake White wanted to bring it back last year. Gee they should have done that as well as given Jake the keys to all their cities.

I also caught wind of this. It was coined the Zulu Haka by the media. What ever happened to that song they used play before and while the Boks ran onto the field? Got me pretty pumped up

Yeah, as a way to get more people to come watch, new zealand dubbed its national badminton team the Black Cocks. seriously. no joke.

I&#39;d love to see a Zulu dance it could be quite fierce as the Zulu are well known warriors but have a very beautiful culture. They should do it like how the All Blacks came out and suprised everyone when they did Kapa O Pango.

I too would love to see them do it....it would go a fair way to bringing down the barriers some S.A people have towards the Springbok emblem and the conotations that go with its past.

I used to live in Rotorua, the home of the biggest Maori society of NZ.
For me the Haka has something special and like mentioned before it adds fire, stamina and energy to a game.

10-06-08, 08:39 AM
Yeah its a great tradition we have.

I think it was the Olympics or the recent commonwealth games where the NZ team started Haka&#39;s for practically everything till the point it almost devalued it, e.g white guys being un co and doing the Haka because someone came third or whatever lol

Hello Russian
Kak zela?

Haka is the historical war dance of New Zealand Aborighens, Maori people made it against the people they were to fight against.
Very interesting text is about the ways "god will help them in a fight and they will devastate their enemies"
I recommend you to visit www.allblacks.com>haka history

Hi again Russian yeah I am from Tbilisi
and best regards friend
well lets say something bout Haka
For me Haka is the great thing I see every match from NZ especially (but Fiji, Samoa, Tonga icluded too) this is the oldest tradition of these remarkable nations and adds more fire to the most beautiful and amazing play Rugby
as well as Rugby is the "intellectual worriors&#39; play" I think such a great war tradition added to this play adds more charm to Rugby
But I think Haka is uniwue to the Southern nations and it must stay so.
I am a personal fan of tana Umaga and I remeber his amazing haka against Springboks where he was so artistic and agressive :rahh: :rahh: :rahh: I think NZ did really feel themselves on the war arena :wall: :%#%#: :%#%#:
best wishes mates :cheers: :lol2tn:

Show me a Full-Blooded Maori from New Zealand... ... ... ... ... uh.. yeah. (it&#39;s harder than you&#39;d think)

Tha Haka is a tradition (Maori or otherwise) it is an amazing spectacle, and something that gives a great sense of pride and power to the All Blacks. I say, let them have it, and do it until the end of time. It is beautiful, and scary. (I had a 110 Kg Maori forward perform the Haka "AT" me at a club function, and it blew me away. )


That being said....
