Students in an all-boys New Zealand were stricken by the death of their teacher Dawson Tamatea July 26 and offered up a haka as a sign of respect in front of the approaching hearse.
The school's YouTube page credits their students with honoring the teacher.
The entire school performing the Haka during the arrival of Mr. Tamatea in the hearse. This was a very emotional and powerful performance. We are extremely proud of our boys' performance and we know that Mr Tamatea would be too.
