'Tonight I gave a free telecall, on Zoom, about the energy of the Haka. This traditional Challenge, and more, has been performed around the world as New Zealander's (Kiwi's) spread abroad. In my heart and mind it is wrong to describe it as a dance, as this down plays the energy and message of it. It carries so much more than that. When used before battle it would create an energy amongst the warriors as to make them feel invincible and connected to botht the earth (Papatuanuku) and the universe (Ranginui). Even while writing this my body begins tro pump and feel strong and powerful...as though I have been for a workout at the gymnasium...My body knows...and so does yours.
We have been taught to make this energy so wrong and yet when we witness the spectacle of the Haka, when given from the Being, we remember and are in awe...What will it take to wake up and remember who we are. No longer sheep at the muster but actually awake and aware... I will give you three links...please try and watch them in order...bet ya can't hehe
The first one shows when its not real...and they have no understanding of the energy of what they are trying to be..
The second one is more recent and the men are being warriors on the sports field and have a reality of the Haka energy....
The third is, for me, the most authentic energy of the Haka.....but this time given as a tribute to a Bride and her Tane (man)...
