I am involved with an event for a second grade class called "Around
the World". In this event the class is to pick a country and emulate
the culture such as; food, song and dance. Our class chose New
Zealand. I wanted to integrate some Maori traditions and came across a
custom called Haka Powhiri (or Haka Pohiri) which is an ancient
Welcome Dance performed by the Maori tribe. However I am having a hard
time locating specific information on this Welcome Dance. I need to
find songs (music files would be ideal), choreography for dance, and
customs behind the dance. I was able to find some information on this
at the web site. However this site has been unavailable
for some time now and I need to get this information very soon. Can
you locate this information for me on the Internet or point me to some
reading material that contains these specifics on the Haka Powhiri
(Maori Welcome Dance)? Thanks much.
