Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Māori party co-leader ejected from New Zealand parliament after performing haka” – below is their description.
An Indigenous New Zealand lawmaker was thrown out of New Zealand’s parliament for performing a Māori haka in protest against what he said were racist arguments.
Rawiri Waititi told lawmakers in the chamber that he was forced to listen to a ‘constant barrage of insults’ directed toward Indigenous people. Speaker Trevor Mallard told Waititi to sit down, but instead he performed the haka, a traditional dance or challenge accompanied by a chant.
‘Order. The member will now leave the chamber,’ Mallard told Waititi, which he did along with his co-leader, Debbie Ngarewa-Packer
