I was inspired by watching Waka Huia on TV1 on Sunday. It was the first time I learned the importance of the eyes when women do the haka. Te Ataarangi taught us that the eyes represent defiance against oppression.
She actually called it the “Dance of Defiance”. The spirit is saying “Is that so?” through the eyes. Its such a powerful expression of strength, that whatever life brings, our response is, “Is that so?”
It’s an awesome goal this week to face challenges with the same spirit behind the “Dance of Defiance”. Happy Matariki everyone.
