The All Blacks, New Zealand's seemingly invincible national rugby team, won today in a test at Eden Park versus France, 23-13. The "shaky" win, by All Blacks standards, was the opening match of the Steinlager Series. Prior to the match, as is their tradition, the All Blacks squad performed a Haka, a traditional Maori war dance, to honor the Indigenous Peoples.

Watch the Haka here:

And here are links to three more videos you won't want to miss.

At Jefferson High School in Portland, OR, a few years ago, there were a few Maori's on the football team. All of the team (including whites, blacks, the whole entire team) would perform the Haka War Cry before every game. The other teams wanted it stopped. It made them feel "uneasy" shall we say. Jefferson took the Championship that year & every year they were allowed to do the Haka War Cry. It was great!!! Really enjoyed it.
