All Blacks Haka



The haka is performed by the "All Blacks" before every game.

The haka originates within Maori culture and was originally performed by warriors before a battle, proclaiming their strength and prowess in order to intimidate the opposition. Today, haka constitute an integral part of formal or official welcome ceremonies for distinguished visitors or foreign dignitaries, serving to impart a sense of the importance of the occasion.
