Many samples of the challenge haka used by the NZ All-Black and a lot of
other hakas, including the version of the challenge dance done in return
the rugbymen of some other island culture whose name escapes me. There's
also a funeral haka in a scene from an NZedder - thanks, Mario Pei! - movie
of some years back.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
