Legal rights for 'Ka mate ka mate'
A law setting out legal rights of Ngati Toa Rangatira over the haka Ka Mate Ka Mate was passed in Parliament today but nothing will change for the All Blacks, Army or Police or other groups performing the haka. The law specifically says the right of attribution do not apply to performances of the haka. But it will allow the iwi to get recognition or reach agreements when it is being used for commercial gain. Courtesy Parliament TV
