Your team learn and perform the Haka with Maori Masters
Join our genuine Maori Masters in the traditional Haka. We are one of only two UK companies that have authentication from tribal elders in New Zealand to use Haka for team building, conference and meeting ice breakers/energisers and corporate entertainment. For centuries, the Haka has been used to unite people to face their challenges head-on with a positive mental attitude.
So, please contact us to discuss how we can help you deliver a memorable Haka event.

The Haka is a great choice for any corporate event
The Haka is ideal as a corporate event:
- perfect for team building
- no set up needed
- no equipment to dismantle
- no limit to numbers
- great fun
- powerful business and personal messages
We can offer anything from a 30-minute energising ‘blast’ to a deeper 90-minute Haka workshop. Also, the Haka can be integrated alongside one of our drumming or other tribal activities. We often perform the Haka as a morning ice breaker and drumming as a finale.
Insist on your Haka masters being Maori. There is no substitute. For the full effect, it is essential to understand the language, the story, each tiny ritual, the traditional welcome and the traditional close.
Our Traditional Maori team will amaze your group with their passion and knowledge of this famous ritual.
Haka is surprising, entertaining, motivating and uniting
The Ka Mate Haka is the story of a leader overcoming a new and life-changing predicament. Forced to trust and undergo a significant change in environment, he rises victorious by being open to new ideas and being adaptable.
The Haka is not just a male activity. In fact, the role of women in performing the Haka is regarded as sacred and acts as a vital tribe defence.
This traditional and ancient Maori tribal ritual acts as a powerful group activity, whether it is used for team building or as a meeting energiser. It brings people together and gives them a shared emotional experience.
Your delegates take their seats and all seems normal. The doors shut behind the last guests and the world music, which has been playing as they enter, is increased in volume, signifying the start of the session. Suddenly…silence. Then, the roar of ‘the call’ – the loud and haunting tribal call of the lead tribesman – giving the team their cue to storm the stage. The team perform the Haka to the delight and surprise of your guests.
Within moments of our team finishing, we have everyone on their feet, and we take them on a whirlwind energiser where they will learn and perform the Haka as one unified team. Your group will experience 100% Maori passion from our authentic Haka masters, some of whom are related to the original tribesmen who wrote this Haka.
Building towards a powerful finale performance, the group will go head-to-head in a bit of healthy tribal competition. Then the battle for tribal supremacy is on as we come together as one tribe for the ultimate Haka.
