Māori interview: on the Haka, the role of women in Māori culture and globalisation

Last week three members of the Māori community visited La Chât where they taught around 1000 students how to do the Haka. The Māori people are indigenous people of New Zealand with their own unique culture, language and traditions. There are currently over 750,000 Māori people around the world with the majority still living in New Zealand where they make up roughly 15% of the population. 

They kindly agreed to an interview where we asked them about the meaning of the Haka and their traditional clothing, the place of women in Māori culture and the future of the Māori people in an era of globalisation.
