Just checking that "haku" is the word you were going for. Here's an extract from a maori to English dictionary.
1. (verb) (-a) to nag, complain about, find fault with, henpeck. Taro ake ka haku a ia i takahia te mana o tōna iwi o Moeraki (TTR 1990 wh351).After a time he complained that the rights of his people of Moeraki had been disregarded.
2. (noun) cold, colic.
3. (noun) kingfish, Seriola lalandi - large sporting fish, dark blue-green on the back and silvery white on the belly with a broad longitudinal yellow stripe on the sides. Body elongated, cylindrical, with a large mouth reaching back to the small eye. See also warehenga.
If it's the word for war dance you were after, that would be "haka".
