Day #6: Bonus Activity - Winter Learning Journey (Native Aotearoa)

You can choose any three events that you wish.
Bonus Activity: As part of the Matariki festival, there is a two-day Kapa Haka competition. The Haka is a traditional war dance that Maori performed before going into battle. The haka is now performed by children/adults in the community and by professional sporting teams, including our national rugby team, the ‘All Blacks.’  The All Blacks have performed various haka over the years. Watch the following three haka videos (1 – 3) and, on your blog, list the haka videos in order from best (#1) to worst (#3). There are no right or wrong answers ☺
At the end of your day at Te Papa, you head to your hotel in the center of Wellington. You are staying on Cuba Street, one of the coolest streets in the city.

Bonus Activity: 8 points

  1. Hi Brooke, Don't the hakas make the hair stand up on the back of your neck??!! They are such powerful statements from one team to another...
    I think your poster is very well done - you explain your choice of ranking the hakas very clearly. Good work!

    My little grandson can present a very convincing haka and he's just 7 years old. It's a remarkable challenge/dance, unique to your country.

    I hope you're enjoying your blogging - you're certainly working very hard at it!
