Exemplum Hongi
Duae mulieres Māorianae facientes Hongi, anno 1913

Salutationem vetustam quae Hongi appellatur Māoriani faciunt premendis mutuo nasis, aliquando et frontibus, cum congrediuntur more antiquorum vel faciunt ritus pōwhiri dictos.

Existimant quod hoc modo advenae et incolae possunt inter se ha (animam) commutare ut monimentum concordiae.

Anno 2020 hongi interdixere causa coronaviri.[1][2]
