  • Description

    New Zealand Maoris 'Haka' for deserving charity. Location of events unknown.

    Maori tribal dance and tongue sticking out ritual; called Haka. Opens with title frame saying they are doing this for a deserving charity. Pan along line of Maori men wearing grass skirts and doing a line dance. They turn to right & left; get down on knees and back up; in synchronised movements. Two men; one tall and one short; each with a primitive weapon; brandish the weapons and jump on each other; pretending to attack; and at the same time sticking out their tongues and rolling their eyes around in a crazed way. CU of these 2 both facing camera and making faces.
