Let's do the Haka Dance!!!


You know when I wake up every morning and looking at this piece of cloth hanging on one of the shelves in my bedroom, my mouth would be automatically mumbling these phrases which I don't really understand, written on the rag-look-a-like thingy.I do find it great cause somehow it motivates and gives me the spirit to live my life to the fullest.woh2.Not forgetting that it also increases my self-esteem..yeah babeyh.

I bought this printed piece of cloth when I was in New Zealand about 5 years ago.Memories2..


Terasa nak menari Haka la plak kan...I love the way the Maori people use their dance culture to motivate and prepare themselves to go against their enemies. But2 don't get mislead..Haka is not a war dance.Haka dances are performed for various reasons: for amusement, as a hearty welcome to distinguished guests, or to acknowledge great achievements or occasions( Source from Wikipedia).

To be frank, I didn't know what to write at first on this post..so i simply play "I spot with my little eye...something beginning with the letter"and walllah...the inspiration came to me and tadaaa...here it goes a post on Haka Dance....humma2..


"KA MATE"




Leader:
Ringa pakia!

Slap the hands against the thighs!

Uma tiraha!

Puff out the chest.

Turi whatia!

Bend the knees!

Hope whai ake!

Let the hip follow!

Waewae takahia kia kino!

Stamp the feet as hard as you can!




Leader:
Ka mate, ka mate

'I die, I die,
Team:
Ka ora' Ka ora'

'I live, 'I live,
Leader:
Ka mate, ka mate

'I die, 'I die
Team:
Ka ora Ka ora "

'I live, 'I live,
All:
Tēnei te tangata pūhuruhuru

This is the fierce, powerful man

Nāna i tiki mai whakawhiti te rā

...Who caused the sun to shine again for me

Upane... Upane

Up the ladder, Up the ladder

Upane Kaupane"

Up to the top

Whiti te rā,!

The sun shines!

Hī!

Rise!


So that should be it..the Haka Dance..Till the next post...Owh the next post will be about Karneval in Cologne..Seriously I can hardly wait for the day to arrive...Thursday woh2..Keep in tune yeah...Tschüss und mach's gut!!!
