Wedding haka - level 2

Wedding haka - level 2

28-01-2016 07:00

A groom’s family performed a haka at his wedding in New Zealand. They were shouting, hitting the floor with their feet and making scary faces.

They performed the traditional dance to show respect to the Maori bride. She, as well as her husband, were clearly moved by the haka. They even joined in themselves.

Difficult words: groom and bride (a man and a wife after their wedding), haka (a traditional Maori ceremonial dance), Maori (relating to the native people of New Zealand).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Is there a traditional dance at a wedding in your country, too?
