Abstract:

A source of pride or a source of controversy, the haka has always been a vital part of Maori culture and tradition. Today it has a growing influence on the lives of all New Zealanders. It provides a powerful and dramatic vehicle for welcoming visitors, challenging opponents, rejoicing in victory and for celebrating culture and a way of life. This story of the haka begins with its origins in the mists of time and looks at its place in legend and in the early Maori world, and the observations of the first European explorers, missionaries and settlers. It discusses the various haka types, the roles of men and women, the origins and importance of the well-known Ka Mate! haka, and how this special dance has been used in war, sport and politics. The book covers recent developments in haka, such as the rising popularity of haka competitions and the new All Black haka.
