Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Most visitors to our country identify New Zealand with the haka, but few know the meaning or history of this powerful challenge. This little book is a beginner's guide to haka, covering the various types of haka and their use including the famous Ka Mate haka and the new Kapa O Pango. Both black and white and full colour photographs showcase the haka in history as well as modern renditions by kapa haka groups. Both a source of pride and a source of controversy, the haka is an integral part of New Zealand's culture.
