Biker crew Black Power,which took name from the civil rights movement & whose members r mostly Maori (indigenous people of #NewZealand) honoured victims of #ChristChurchMassacre by performing Haka(ceremonial dance). White supremacy’s earliest victims honouring its latest victims
“That (white power extremism) has been here for years, it’s been here for decades,” a leader of Black Power who did not want to be named told the Courier Mail outside the Linwood mosque. Here’s the full Haka msn.com/en-us/video/sp… #ChristChurchMosqueMassacre
Here a lone man performs Haka, which is not just a “war dance” but is performed at weddings,funerals & other significant occasions for Maori culture. I’m deeply moved by these Haka which so poignantly capture grief and rage. #ChristchurchMosqueMassacre
If anyone knows the lone man’s name, please send it to me and I’ll share it. Both Black Power and his Haka are so powerful. Watching him alone, so movingly convey strength, pain and vulnerability is such a profound way to pay tribute to those murdered in #ChristchurchMosque.
This incredible Haka in support of victims of #ChristchurchMosqueMassacre was performed on a beach on the Gold Coast of #Australia
And this Haka followed a vigil at a Gold Coast mosque in support of victims of #ChristchurchMosqueMassacre
Another Maori crew, Mongrel Mob, also paid respects to the Muslim Community after the #ChristchurchMosqueMassacre
The Maori name for New Zealand is Aotearoa. The Haka I posted above are some of the most powerful and moving expressions of mourning and solidarity I have seen following the massacre at the #ChristchurchMosque.

Send me any Haka in honour of the victims of #ChristchurchMosque massacre that you see and which isn’t listed above and I’ll include it in this thread.
This is why in the first tweet in my thread above I mentioned the name of the crew - Black Power. But I am learning more from this important article about their history h/t @emmajanereading
