Bhagwant Mann Welcomed in New Zealand by Haka Dancers

The natives known as Kiwis welcomed Bhagwant Mann by doing their traditional Haka dance at the Auckland airport. The resounding welcome by the dancers created a media buzz with local outlets picking up the story of the uncommon act at the airport.

The haka (plural is the same as singular: haka) is a traditional ancestral war cry, dance, or challenge from the Māori people of New Zealand. It is a posture dance performed by a group, with vigorous movements and stamping of the feet with rhythmically shouted accompaniment.

War haka were originally performed by warriors before a battle, proclaiming their strength and prowess in order to intimidate the opposition, but haka are also performed for various reasons: for welcoming distinguished guests, or to acknowledge great achievements, occasions or funerals, and kapa haka performance groups are very common in schools.
