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.
Honi (pronounced HO – nee) is the traditional Hawaiian greeting. The english translation is “to kiss”, but actually, the original greeting was touching forehead to forehead, nose to nose and exchanging breath.
Let's hope that people will get the chance to come together soon and greet each other with love and respect.
