A Biker Club Paid Respects To The Christchurch Victims By Performing A Heart-Melting Haka Dance

On March 15, 2019, the world has been shaken by the frightening terror attack in Christchurch in New Zealand, when a shooter opened fire on unsuspecting Muslims during Friday Prayer. The attacks which took place at the Al Noor Mosque and the Linwood Islamic Centre, and took 50 lives, leaving fifty other injured. Far-right extremism, Islamophobia, and white supremacy are reported to be the primary motives of the deadliest mass shooting in contemporary New Zealand history.


Since the horrific attack on Friday, there've been many discussions raised and some incidents, such as Will Connolly, also known as Egg Boy, cracking an egg on Senator Fraser Anning’s head. However, among hundreds of words and opinions, stand the survivors and families of the victims who have to deal with tremendous loss, and fortunately, millions of people in the world support them and condemn the attacker’s actions and the reasons behind it as well.


In Christchurch, people have been paying tributes, leaving notes, flowers, and toys near Al Noor mosque. On March 17, 2019, a biker gang decided to pay their respects to the victims by performing the Haka, a Māori ceremonial dance.


The Haka is a traditional ceremonial dance or challenge in Māori culture. It has been known in pop culture with such paradigms as Jason Momoa performing it at the “Aquaman” premiere or his Game of Thrones audition. The dance is performed on special occasions, like funerals.
