Maori Culture


I like the maori culture when it's sweet, graceful and skillful.
Not loud, off pitch and savage-like.

I also remember, as a pre-teen, that women acting savage during a performance was taboo.
I missed the memo when it was, apparently, un-vetoed.
When The Spice Girls did the haka years ago, they were criticized.
When Beyonce did it last year, everyone thought it was amazing.
I didn't. It made me cringe.
