We’ve all seen some YouTube clips of Haka’s being performed. The traditional Maori war dance has been performed at weddings, funerals and retirements of respected people. The dance, originally performed by warriors before a battle to intimidate is now done mostly as a sign of respect and to acknowledge extraordinary events. Passed down through families, the dance is a powerful and emotional legacy of the Maori people. This little guy learning it from his dad and far from being intimidating, the baby Haka is the most adorable thing ever.

Baby Haka


I’m sure when he’s grown and really gets his hollering in, his war cry will shake the very ground he walks on. For now though, it’s just awesome to see a dad and son passing tradition together.
