  • Description

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this item.

    New Zealand.

    Various shots of Maori men and women doing a traditional Haka dance. A European (?) man seems to be visiting; he sits wearing a sort of flowered shawl around his shoulders while another white man makes a speech. More dancing - one of the Maori men is really putting a lot into his dance, grinding his hips and making faces. Other Maori men and women do a dancing with spears that involves lots of leaping about.
