Day 6 - Bonus 8 points

Read about the Matariki festival at Te Papa.  There are so many different things to see and do at the festival this year. On your blog, tell us about three of the events. 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 ☺


  1. Hello Freeman thank you for putting up the links for the video. You didn't put up your ratings of the video. Can you please fix it. You have done a great job by the way.

  2. Hi Freeman
    I kind of agree with you expect I think the haka that the All Blacks did against Argentina was the best one. Keep up the amazing (and long) flow of activities.

  3. Hi Freeman. Great blogpost. I think the haka against Argentina was the best because they looked very powerful and intimidating. Keep up the great work.

  4. Malo Freeman!

    I'd love to know why you chose the haka's in this order? I outdent choose my favourite one because I always love the haka and think it is so moving and powerful every time I watch it.


  5. Hello Freeman, maybe next time you should explain why you decided to put the haka's in that particular order. I think the haka against Argentina was the best one. Keep on blogging.
