A little further explanation about why these two groups of youngsters are facing off to each other would have been nice. They looked as if they were getting really fired up with each other.

Maori were the original inhabitants of New Zealand, and remain prominent (if often socially marginalized) in the current population. Absolutely kick-ass warriors, they successfully resisted British incursions and attempts at colonial pacification for generations. In the past few decades, there has been a sustained effort to better integrate Maori traditions and language (such as the Haka you see here), into the educational system. The ritual's original purpose was to inspire the Maori warriors and terrorize their enemies prior to battle. Maybe before making infantile comments about gayness, you should read a f*ckin' book, you ignoramus.
