It’s Monday again. Here’s my weekly fun time looking for Jason’s antics and info.
Found this interesting bit performed at the LA Aquaman premiere in 2018.
Let’s enjoy his impromptu performance!
The haka is a ceremonial dance or challenge in Māori culture. It is performed by a group, with vigorous movements and stamping of the feet with rhythmically shouted accompaniment. Although commonly associated with the traditional battle preparations of male warriors, haka have long been performed by both men and women, and several varieties of the haka fulfill social functions within Māori culture. Haka are performed to welcome distinguished guests, or to acknowledge great achievements, occasions or funerals.

What does Aquaman say in Maori?
Momoa’s character uses a common Māori colloquial saying “ana tōkai! ‘ – It serves you right! during a fighting scene. The way he wields his trident echoes the use of the taiaha.
