Hake for Life, walks with Pride! 🏳️🌈
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.
We are looking for enthusiastic members to join our board and keep Haka For Life moving forwards. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Haka For Life had the honour and pleasure of supporting the NZ made movie COUSINS last in Liechardt Sydney.
Co- directors of the movie Briar Grace-Smith & Ainsley Gardiner joined the screening of the movie, along with Aboriginal dancers, who also shared smoking ceremony and welcome to country.
Another beautiful night had on this journey of standing for life.
