Saw the tribal/war dance at a wedding reception that's making its way around Facebook. Thought that was so cool, especially the high emotion for everyone. Real tradition.
Prompted me to look at some other videos of the tribal haku celebrations. Came across this one, which is so frigging awesome, it's just off the charts.
Jonah Lomu was a beloved player who was sick for a long time, and eventually died from a heart attack at 40 (related to the illness).
I love every second of this video, but especially when the kids start their tribute a bit later in.
I've seen these chants/dances/performances before, but I'm a bit mesmerized by them at the moment. Really fascinating stuff.
