New Zealand MP performs ceremonial indigenous dance as part of her first speech in Parliament
· Jan 7, 2024 ·

Bear with me here, this is Hana-Rawhiti Maipi-Clarke, New Zealand's youngest MP in 170 years, and as she began her maiden speech (her first speech in Parliament) she broke out into a Haka dance, which is very common among the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand.

The traditional dance is performed possibly to celebrate Maipi-Clarke's achievement, but I can't help but think she's performing the dance in a sort of preparation for "war" as a new MP who is dissatisfied with her country and its lawmakers (she was elected to represent the Maori native's political party).


Here's the full video with her speech included.



Yeah, really not sure how to feel about this one.

Give me your best reactions down in the comments. I know they won't be better than the face of THIS dude standing behind Maipi-Clarke.
