New Zealand national team performs the Haka on the ice

Most often seen with the All Blacks, New Zealand's national rugby team, the famous haka, historically an intimidating dance, has found its place in the hockey world with the New Zealand team.

In a video shared by an X user (formerly Twitter), we can see the team practicing the haka, which is pretty impressive!

For those unfamiliar with the history of the haka, this New Zealand tradition is a powerful symbol of Maori culture, practiced for centuries. The haka is a ritual dance, often performed in groups, that combines powerful movements, rhythmic singing, intense facial expressions, and powerful gestures.

Historically, it has been used to intimidate opponents before battles, to celebrate important occasions, or to honour distinguished guests. Today, the haka is famous around the world thanks to the All Blacks, New Zealand’s national rugby team, who perform it before every international match. This iconic performance conveys a deep respect for Māori ancestors and their culture, and symbolises the unity, strength and pride of the New Zealand nation. The haka continues to play a central role in cultural celebrations and events, continuing a rich tradition that connects generations past and present.
