Sailors emulate the haka during Navy Region Hawaii’s 243rd Navy birthday ball in Honolulu, Oct. 13. A haka is a traditional Maori dance that celebrates life, and has been used in battle. In modern times, it is performed during special occasions. The theme for the Navy’s 243rd birthday is “Forged by the Sea.” The theme represents the aspirational outcome of every Sailor’s journey in uniform and conveys the notion that every Sailor is shaped and strengthened into a more capable version of themselves through Navy service.
