The Hongi - exchanging each other's breath; a beautiful concept and transfer of human life. Honoured to have met beautiful Maori people and exchanged the breath of life!

The honi is a Polynesian greeting in which two people greet each other by pressing noses and inhaling at the same time. This is a very honorific as this represents the exchange of ha--the breath of life, and mana--spiritual power between two people.
