Everyday just before eating our lunch a child shares a Food Karakia - a Maori prayer. The child shares each line and the rest of the class repeat it. After we've finished the Karakia we get on with eating our lunch.
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.
