Tune in, and be prepared to Haka on Wednesday, April 15th at 3PMHAKA LIVE for Healthcare Workers is here to give EMS – EMTs, Paramedics, Doctors, Nurses, Medical Technicians, and all Healthcare Workers a moment to feel empowered as they continue to devote themselves in this time of crisis.

Join us in learning the Toka Tu Moana, which means standing united and strong in the face of adversity. This particular Haka is being dedicated to health workers in the US as a way to support and help uplift them as they work endlessly to save lives. It’s simple, powerful and will be taught in a fun and open way. Founder, Karl Barrows, will be teaching haka, an encouraging, motivating, and sacred dance that has been used to inspire and unite communities in times of triumph and loss.

Going LIVE with Toka Tu Moana

Karl has composed Toka Tu Moana, a haka based on a famous proverb that encourages standing united and strong in the face of adversity. TeamBonding was approached by EMS in [New York] to see how Haka Works could help lift morale and unite the EMS and Health Workers during this time. In response, Haka Works has offered to teach the Haka Toka Tu Moana for EMS/Health Workers as a way to help them feel supported and empowered to face the crisis together. This Haka will be taught remotely during the Facebook LIVE event.

Passion, Energy, and Commitment

Haka shows us how to approach life,
especially in times of difficulty.

  • Boldly face challenges
  • Confidence to overcome all adversity
  • Strengthen team unity
  • Energize your team
  • Connecting teams to organizational values
