Hongi is a multi-lingual information portal and service directory.
Hongi takes its name from the traditional Māori greeting. The hongi is performed by two
people pressing their noses together; some include, at the same time, the touching of
foreheads. In the hongi, the ha (breath of life) is exchanged in a symbolic show of unity.
Through the exchange of this greeting, manuhiri, visitors, blend with tangata whenua, the
people of the land, and establish a connection. The greeting takes place at traditional
meetings among Māori people, and significant ceremonies, such as a pōwhiri.
The goal of the Hongi information portal is also to connect the people of New Zealand and
those who are coming to our beautiful land; to welcome and inform them and promote
friendship and understanding across cultural and linguistic divides.
The Hongi Information Portal is owned and operated by Eastern Bridge Limited, a New
Zealand international relations company based in Napier, Hawke's Bay. For more
