|The traditional Maori greeting|
|Haka (sort of)|
Just to add to Andy's last post: the one part he didn't mention is that he was chosen to be the chief that represented our group of visitors. (I guess they could tell he is an alpha male :-) He did a great job accepting the offering from the Maori chief, which allowed us to enter their camp and watch the performance. I'll post a picture of Andy greeting the chief and one of us learning the haka. The chief taught us a few moves and then we gave it a try. Personally, I think I captured the bulging eyes and tongue pretty well . . .
