Tamak Intermediate - Maori Haka

This footage from our 2008 Haka/Waiata Cultural Festival is footage of the Achilles Boys Haka but also includes the Best Male Performer for 2008, John from Room Six. This was filmed on Friday 5th December 2008 at Tamaki Intermediate School by Victor. The Haka is a Maori Haka.

Great Haka guys!
I certainly wouldn't want to mess with you after watching that! Very scary, very cool!

Thanks for that Sue. Yes the idea of a Haka is a challenge or a warning and asking for respect so that was the intention.

Nice job boys! My class has enjoyed watching your videos this year, as we are learning some Hakas ourselves. Your blog has inspired us to start our own blog for next year! Keep up the good work. Our new blog is now up at web.me.com/jarrod.lamshed

Mr Lamshed thanks so much for your comment, can't wait to see your work go online and will really enjoy your blog. It seems to be having a few technical problems at the moment with the commenting but we will put a link to your site as soon as we can. Can't wait to network with your school at my new location!

Mr Lamshed said...

Thanks for the feedback. Will check out the comment problem. Would like to keep in touch when the school year begins. Thanks.

Thanks again.
