New Zealand sports teams' practice of performing a haka before their international matches has made the haka more widely known around the world. This tradition began with the —89 New Zealand Native football team tour and has been carried on by the New Zealand rugby union team "All Blacks" since The group of people performing a haka is referred to as a kapa haka kapa meaning row or rank. In some languages, the meaning is divergent, for example in Tikopia saka means to 'perform rites in traditional ritual system'.
