I come from a Ukrainian and Scottish background, both known for a love of potatoes & booze, but unfortunately not so much for their awesome war rituals. I’m really not sure what it is exactly that gets me so emotional when I see the haka performed; it could be the raw power and strength mixed right n with the vulnerability and emotion. Whatever it is, I tear up like a baby when ever I see it.
So when I saw this haka performed at Benjamin and Aaliyah Armstrong’s wedding, I was a complete blithering mess. It went viral and has had over 20,000,000 views, and for good reason. It’s bloody beautiful.
