This is the senior class of 2015 at Kahuku High School located in Hawaii more specifically the North Shore of Oahu. The seniors learned this number in 2 days…they did a great job.

@8:43 they performed the “Kaipahua Kura” which is their very own “Haka” or “war dance” from the Maori people of New Zealand.

What some might not know is that the haka was made for Kahuku. Here are the words and it’s English translation. (source)

Ko Wai Matou? Kaipāhua Kura
Who are we? We are the Red Raiders
Ko Wai Matou? Kaipāhua Kura
Who are we? We are the Red Raiders
Ko Wai Matou? Kaipāhua Kura
Who are we? We are the Red Raiders

Eke ake Hi
We will move Onward and Upward
Eke ake Hi
Through this team then on to the next challenge
Eke ake Hi
Forward Never backwards and Upwards never down
Eke ake Hi
We will go On and then Up through the season
Eke ake Hi
We will always strive to go Onward and Upward (The boys respond with Hi to say “Yes” or “I Agree” “I will do my part”)

Kei te papa pakanga
On this battlefield – Our Football Field
He iwi kotahi
We are unified we are one
Mo nga iwi Whanui
For our families and Community (Who have been through much)
Tangata kairakau
We will stand as Warriors (For them)
Tangata Maia
We will stand Brave
Tangata Wehi kore
And We will never retreat, there will be no surrender
Kaua ka mate wheke
We won’t die like Octopus (Retreating from Danger)
Ka Mate Ururoa Kaipahua
But we will fight with courage like Hammerhead sharks, Like the Raiders of the past.

Ruturutu – Hi
We will Tackle Hard
Makamaka – Ha
We will Play as a unified Force
Ruturutu – Hi
Tackling Hard
Makamaka – Ha
We will play as a team

Ko Wai Matou? Kaipāhua Kura HI
You may wonder who are we? We are the Red Raiders (We Continue the legacy)
