Day 6: Bonus Activity (Native Aotearoa)

Bonus Activity: As part of the Matariki festival, there is a two day Kapa Haka competition. The haka is a traditional war dance that Maori performed before going into battle. The haka is now performed by children/adults in the community and by professional sporting teams, including our national rugby team, the ‘All Blacks.’  The All Blacks have performed various haka over the years. Watch the following three haka videos (1 – 3) and, on your blog, list the haka videos in order from best (#1) to worst (#3). There are no right or wrong answers ☺
At the end of your day at Te Papa, you head to your hotel in the centre of Wellington. You are staying on Cuba Street, one of the coolest streets in the city.


  1. Hi Malia,

    That's great. Thanks for rating the All Black's haka and giving a review about which haka you enjoyed most. Have you seen the haka performed at school? Students at Koru primary school usually perform the haka before their rugby games.

    Keep up the good work Malia.


  2. Hi Malia. I agree with you the haka against Argentina was the best.
