The Head Hunters have released a video featuring young children hanging out with gang members and pulling gang signs.

The video, posted on YouTube on October 31, appears to be used as a recruitment tool to entice young children and members of the public to join the Auckland-based gang.

In the video, produced by Outsiders Films, gang members are seen pulling wheelies and doing burnouts outside their Henderson headquarters.

Riders can be seen speeding through tunnels and overtaking cars on Auckland's motorways.

The video, which has more than 23,000 views to date, features the music of Kiwi rapper and producer Kings as well as American hip-hop artist DJ Skandalous.

It also features footage from inside the headquarters which show off the Head Hunters' bikes and memorabilia on the walls.

It is believed the gang has used children as a way to promote the feeling of family and encourage young people to join the Head Hunters.
