To visit New Zealand and not hear or see a Maori war chant - Haka, is virtually impossible. The haunting and powerful haka is an experience not soon forgotten. From powerful vibrations created by stomping feet, to the flexing and tearing of hand and body movements to the unforgettable intensity of facial and wide-eyed stares, the haka is culture staring right at you.
