Greenshirts welcomed with Maori 'Haka' dance in Dunedin
Greenshirts welcomed with Maori 'Haka' dance in Dunedin
Published at: 7 month(s) ago


Dunedin, New Zealand: The Pakistan cricket team received a warm traditional Maori dance welcome upon its arrival in Dunedin, the venue for the third one-day international against New Zealand on January 13 (Saturday).

The cricketers were pleasantly surprised when the Maori – the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand – lined up at the Dunedin International Airport to welcome them with the traditional ‘Haka’ dance.

The haka is a traditional war dance in Maori culture. It is a posture dance performed with vigorous movements and stamping of the feet, with rhythmic loud chants. The dance used to be performed by warriors before a battle, proclaiming their strength and prowess.

The Green Shirts were amused at the traditional welcome. Some started filming the performance.

The New Zealand rugby team, known as the ‘All Blacks’, famously perform the Haka before their matches.
