Good grief! My first reaction was “What in the world is this?!” Is this some crazy prank dance from the groomsmen? Digging deeper, someone on FB described this outrageous display like this:

“Such a wicked and wonderful way to celebrate the spirituality of the Maori. To people that understand what the ‘Haka’ is, this will strike a chord. Its a War Cry. It’s an offering of themselves to do whatever they can to survive or become victorious. In this application it shows the complete other side of what we know the Haka to be today. Instead of blood and sweat on the rugby pitch. It’s blood and sweat being pledged to this marriage. Truly a beautiful showing.”

I am speechless and in awe of this beautifully powerful ceremony!
