‘HAKA’ is the war cry/dance and sign of respect of the Maori people native to New Zealand. These videos started when a Black Power Maori biker group called Black Panther decided they wanted to tell hateful fuckers, there aren’t having this shit in their community. I think people took it seriously.

Take a minute to watch these videos of New Zealand showing the world hate can’t live there. Truly powerful.
This small group of kids started an impromptu haka in tribute to two of their peers slain in the Christchurch shooting. Soon they were joined by scores of fellow students to form a deafening chorus. pic.twitter.com/Zmh7I5LQxG

White, Black, Muslim, Catholic, Jews, Females, Males, Old, Young. This is what national pride looks like. This is what strength and courage sound like.

This has been happening all over New Zealand since Friday and I think it needs to be watched and shared with the world. It’s the best response to terrorism you’ll ever see.
y’all who aren’t from new zealand wouldn’t feel & know how powerful haka is. it’s not only used as war cry for rugby but is also a sign of respect. this is today in front of the mosque where one of the attacks happened. such a beautiful way to pay tribute. bless these young kids. pic.twitter.com/BCJivJqRNx

I’m in tears here, so don’t mind me.
Haven’t written about this because until now it’s all been sadness.
This is the extreme opposite.
