The Haka

The Haka will change the energy and focus of any event. Once greeted in Maori and then English, your group of any size are told that it’s their turn next! This fascinating interactive activity is all about building:

  • Tribal unity
  • Individual pride
  • Moving forward as one people


Using authentic Maori tribal members in full traditional costume, your group will learn the intriguing history and purpose of the Haka before jumping into action and learning the words, movements and postures.

How it works

The Maori team enters the room and performs the opening Haka for your team to enjoy.

They then give a brief introduction into the history of the Haka and the Maori culture, before your team is told that it’s their turn next! The Haka is all about:


And some of the famous words you will learn are:

“Ki Mai Ki ahau, he aha te mea nui o te Ao?

Maku e ki atu, he tangata, he tangata, he tangata.”

Which means:

If you were to ask me, “What is the most important thing in the world?” I would reply, “It is people, people, people.”
