How a haka promotes positive male bonding
Community clip
Clip from Totally Wild  |  Season 23  |  Episode 150  |  ELEVEN  |  July 1, 2016

Alex participates in a Manu Toa Haka group. The tradition originated in New Zealand from Maori dances and a war dance in particular. Older schoolage boys have adapted this mode of energy release and bonding to help their brothers meet their goals in life. For instance, to make good grades, and stop slacking off. Performing traditional dance and embracing their cultural identity has indeed helped give each of the young men in the group renewed focus and drive in their individual lives.
