When I got to Zealand to celebrate the turn of the millenium, at the hotel, we were greeted that evening after dinner with a Haka, the traditional Maori ceremonial dance. The Maori are the indigenous people of New Zealand. It is performed by a group, with vigorous movements and stamping of the feet with rhythmically shouted accompaniment. Originally, it was associated with the traditional battle preparations of male warriors. Today, Haka are performed to welcome distinguished guests, or to acknowledge great achievements, occasions or funerals.
