Black Power members have performed an emotional haka outside the Al Noor Mosque cordon in Christchurch this afternoon.

Surrounded by dozens of other mourners and facing the many flowers left near the mosque, the group of men performed the haka as the crowd stood in silence.

"We're just waiting for the 'big day' so we can come and support them," Black Power member Shane Turner said.
