A Warriors' Final Haka

Three New Zealand soldiers, Corporal Luke Tamatea, Lance Corporal Jacinda Baker, and Private Richard Harris were killed by an IED (improvised explosive device) in Afghanistan in August. When their bodies were returned to Burnham Military Camp in New Zealand, they were greeted by fellow Kiwi soldiers in dress uniform who performed a tradition Maori Haka for their fallen comrades.

This is the 'salute to fallen warriors' haka, you can tell by the fists striking the sides of the head, about halfway through.
