  • The Primal way to face down the opposing team

    All Blacks haka on Youtube

    I think all games should be prefaced by a war dance, don't you?

    Oh I love watching them do this. We are not big on rugby here in Melbourne, but during the world cup in 2004 this was a fav segment on tv!

          It's been years since I watched it, but this reminded me of a scene in Braveheart; I think the Scots finished it off by raising their kilts and waggling their bottoms at the British. Would definitely make a nice addition.

            We had a team from Tonga come and play against us while on tour years ago. They performed a Haka too. It was amazing.
            There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.

            My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

              ^^ Maori. And yes, it totally does work at psyching the other team out. BTW, the Scots always like to flash us, they're the only country with the balls to do so :P

              Also, fun fact: That face they make with the bulging eyes, poking out the tongue? It literally means :I'm going to kill you, and eat your carcass. (it's a big insult. Like, 'You are not worthy' etc.)

                As long as it's culturally correct, and not disrespecting of others traditions.

                  Very cool - never seen it before. I'll definitely remember it for when my 3 yr old starts sports as I think it really will psyche out the other team. Even if they don't look fierce (kids you know) it really makes them look united and like they have their game on!

                    I saw this on "Deadliest Warrior" (guilty pleasure) and yeah that's what they said it meant too.

                    Who won that game? It would suck to have your ass handed to you after that...
                    I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

                        yeah, people are psyched about it here.

                        the Haka is definitely culturally appropriate, and the maori and all new zealanders are really *proud* of the maori heritage.

                        i live near a school and marae (home/sacred ground) wherein once you are on the grounds, they ask that you only speak maori (if you know it), to foster the language. I'm considering writing to them and asking if they would take pakeha (non-maori) children in their school. i would like to learn more about it myself.

                        i'm also really lucky, one of my practitioners utilizes maori herbalism, and is connected into the maori traditional healing community. and, i'm still trying to get my head around the maramataka -- or maori calendar -- to help us adjus to the seasons here. because there are 4, but we are not used to identifying the signs. the maramataka helps with this (and is a luna calendar as well, so it works well with biodynamics).

                        anyway, i'm rambling, but I think it's pretty awesome.

                          I showed this to my supervisor and said our team should do something along the same lines at the company meetings.
                          He was all for it.

                          (Meaning no cultural disrespect to anyone--I just like it.)

                            There are a bunch of samoans at a regional rugby team back where I'm from that would do a haka of their own, but for them it was culturally appropriate. I worry that dudes like this one are going to start doing it because it's "retro-cool" or some such other marketing lingo term en vogue by the mac users in urban areas here...

                              Wouldn't that be showing too much enthusiasm for a hipster?
