Description

The haka has always been a vital part of Maori culture and tradition. Today it has a growing influence on the lives of all New Zealanders. This book traces the story of the haka from its origins in Maori legend to its role in a contemporary commercial world. The haka has been an instrument of nation building, an icon of NZ's unique identity.
