To inspire conversations on the topic of men’s mental health this International Men’s Day, performers from Haka For Life took to Sydney’s tallest and most unique stage, SKYWALK at The Sydney Tower Eye to perform Ngati Toa Rangatira Haka, Ka Mate, a celebration of life over death.
Haka for Life were joined today by Karl Wickey, a Sydney-based, Wiradjuri man, to encourage a powerful conversation about men’s mental health.
Commenting on the importance of recognising International Men’s Day, Leon Ruri, Founder and Creator of Haka For Life, said, “Many men live in silence, struggling to communicate with those around them, this struggle often challenges them to understand the positive meaning of life. Silence does not exist when Haka is performed. It requires a man’s vulnerability to truly express himself, but in doing so, makes him incredibly powerful in his communication to others.
“Today’s opportunity to showcase two of the world’s oldest surviving cultures above Sydney, was very special. Performing on the Gadigal Land of the Dharug Nation, in front of Sydney’s magical backdrop was a great honour and something we will never forget,” added Ruri.
Today’s performance was incredible even in the pouring rain at the Fremantle fishing boat harbour for WA Day celebrations another great opportunity to share our message to choose life.
We acknowledge Hauruia for choosing to stand with us and share in the beautiful energy of our culture.
We acknowledge all who showed up and stood with us to perform today. You could of been anywhere else today and you chose to be with us, so humbling.
Thank you to Nella Fitzgerald organiser of WA day Freo for inviting us to perform and to all who watched us and supported us near and far.
We love being able to empower and connect people through Haka and creating opportunities for people to experience. If you would like to Haka with us and share our message to choose life just send us a message
