A great chief hides in a dark pit, alert and listening to the enemy footsteps above. He waits in the darkness, not knowing if he will ever step into the sunlight again.
From this adventure, the great chief composes ‘Ka Mate’, a haka handed down from generation to generation, and now known around the world.
Whiti Te Rā! tells this great story in Māori.
An English version is also available, titled Haka.
