The Maori tribe, which owns the rights of Ka Mad “Haqqa”, on Monday called on anti-vaccine protesters to stop performing the well-known ritual in their protests.

The Ngati Toa tribe is recognized by New Zealand law as the cultural protector of Ka Mad Haqqa, which was used in recent struggles against restrictions due to the Kovit-19 epidemic.

Haqqa is a Maori stage show that combines synchronized spells, gestures and gestures.

“Nagati Dova condemns the use of Ka Mad Haqqa to promote and promote anti-Govt-19 vaccine news,” a statement from a suburb of Wellington said.

“We urge protesters to immediately stop using our tonga (cultural treasure),” they said.

The Ka Made Haqqa All Blocks National Rugby Team performs before their matches, and it is very popular among all practiced by the Maori.

The ritual of firm gestures is part of New Zealand culture and is often used at social events such as weddings or funerals. Ka Made was composed in 1820 by the warlord De Roubaraha and celebrated his escape from a rival tribe that persecuted him.

In 2014, Parliament approved legislation recognizing the Nagati Dova tribe as Haqqa’s protector, although it was not penalized for its misuse.

Tribal leader Helmut Motlik criticized the anti-vaccine protesters for putting their personal preferences first. About the highest benefit.

“We are absolutely clear that the Govt-19 vaccine is the best protection available to us, and we promise to vaccinate our Vanav (family) soon,” he said.

New Zealand has resorted to drastic measures against Kovit-19, including locking and border controls, resulting in the death of only 33 people out of a population of five million.
