My Momoa Monday Moment …. “🌺 ‘The Haka at LA Aquaman Premiere ’ 🌺 …. “!!

~~May 18, 2020~~


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.

I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
