ALL BLACKS HAKA 2017-03-30T03:58:50+00:00
In August 2005, before the Tri Nations Test match against South Africa at Carisbrook, the All Blacks performed for the first time ‘Kapa O Pango’, a new haka for and about the All Blacks. 

A year in the making, Kapa O Pango was written for the team by Derek Lardelli, an expert in tikanga Maori (Maori culture and customs) of the Ngati Porou iwi. Its words and actions celebrate the land of New Zealand, the silver fern and its warriors in black. The name might be translated simply as ‘team in black’.
