    Maoris have a ceremonial feast and dance a Haka.

  • Description

    Titles read: "THE SUPER PORK FEAST!"

    New Zealand.

    Various shots of an outdoor Maori ceremonial feast. Hot stones on a fire are covered with leaves and pork, buried under bags or sacks and covered with earth, then left for two hours.

    When the earth and sacks are uncovered, the meat is cooked and handed out to people to eat. Maori men and women do a traditional Haka dance (natural sound) for the camera; a crowd of people (tourists?) watch.
