Soldiers of Taji O Toa, translated from Samoan to Warriors of Taji, perform a traditional the Haka, or traditional war dance of the Polynesian Islands, during the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month celebration at the Sgt. John M. Schoolcraft III Pavilion at Camp Taji, northwest of Baghdad, May 23. Haka traditionally has no music accompaniment and the group uses hand clapping, chants and foot stomping to create their own rhythms. The group consists of Multi-National Division - Baghdad Soldiers from the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team "Warrior," 25th Infantry Division and 12th Combat Aviation Brigade.
