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


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 centre of Wellington. You are staying on Cuba Street, one of the coolest streets in the city.

Bonus Activity: 8 points


  1. Hi Lusia. Great blogpost. I like how you have explained your reason why you chose the haka against France. However I disagree with you, I think the haka against Argentina was the best because, they looked powerful and intimidating. Keep up the fabulous work.

    1. Hi Ohhsen,
      it's alright if you disagree with me I liked that one but I am sure I liked the ka mate haka better!
      Anyways have a good holiday!
