The Haka is an impressive traditional war dance performed by the Maori people of New Zealand. The impressive posture dance is performed by a group of warriors who stomp vigorously and gesture fiercely along to the rhythmic shouting chants that accompany the challenge.
The War Haka were performed by warriors before battle to proclaim their strength and intimidate the opposition. In other circumstances, it is performed to welcome distinguished guests, acknowledge a great achievement, occasion or funeral.
Herea Winitana from Totorua, New Zealand (Aotearoa) posted a video of baby Atutahi performing the haka. This adorable little one, who has only just turned two years old, has stolen over 13 million hearts with his fierce performances.
