2nd 1st Farewell Their Fallen Comrades With A Huge Haka
Haka is used throughout New Zealand by many, not only Māori, to demonstrate their collective thoughts. There is a haka for each of the Services, as well as the Defence Force. Units with the NZ Army have their own haka.
This video shows the soldiers of 2/1 RNZIR Battalion performing their Unit haka, powerfully acknowledging the lives and feats of their fallen comrades as they come onto the Unit's parade ground.
It is also an emotive farewell for they will leave via the waharoa (the carved entrance way) for the very last time. .
