為何毛利人以磨鼻子表現打招呼

為什麼紐西蘭毛利人是以磨鼻子表示打招呼?

這個方式的意義是什麼?緣由又是什麼?

有很多資料都有敘述毛利人文化,

但就是沒有敘述為什麼磨鼻子

很多都是重複的資料

有沒有誰知道磨鼻子方式的原因是什麼?

    磨鼻子叫做Hongi

    很容易就查到了啊

    我翻譯Wiki的解釋

    In the hongi (traditional greeting), the ha or breath of life is exchanged and intermingled.

    磨鼻子的過程中,"ha",或是生命的氣息會混合交融

    Through the exchange of this physical greeting, you are no longer considered manuhiri (visitor) but rather tangata whenua, one of the people of the land. For the remainder of your stay you are obliged to share in all the duties and responsibilities of the home people. In earlier times, this may have meant bearing arms in times of war, or tending crops of kumara (sweet potato).

    從這種肢體上的交流,你就從客人晉升成土地的子民之一.之後你就必須如同族人一樣分擔責任以及工作.原本這代表著幫助種植番薯和參加戰爭.

    When Māori greet one another by pressing noses, the tradition of sharing the breath of life is considered to have come directly from the gods.

    毛利人磨鼻子分享生命氣息的習俗源於神話.

    In Māori folklore, woman was created by the gods moulding her shape out of the earth. The god Tane (meaning male) embraced the figure and breathed into her nostrils. She then sneezed and came to life. Her name was Hineahuone (earth formed woman).

    毛利神話中,女人是被神由泥土創造.Tane(男)神擁抱了這個人型,並呼氣到她鼻孔裡. 她打了個噴嚏然後活了過來.他的名字叫做Hineahunone(土造的女人).

    希望這個夠詳細

    (碰鼻子)是他們打招呼的方式,呈現出與台灣不一樣的社會規範

    當聽到一聲聲「kiaora!kiaora!」,然後以鼻子碰鼻子的方式問候對方時,沒錯,正是毛利人在向您打招呼。紐西蘭島的毛利人原住民,屬波里尼西亞的一支,臉上獨特的漩渦刺青花紋是地位象徵。

    我想這個是妳找到最多的解釋。

    kia ora is a Māori language greeting which has entered New Zealand English. It means literally "be well/healthy" and is translated as an informal "hi" at the Māori Language Commission website Kōrero Māori. The New Zealand Ministry for Culture and Heritage website NZ History lists it as one of 100 Māori words every New Zealander should know, with a definition "Hi!, G'day! (general informal greeting)".

    而這句話的原意是祝福對方有個好元氣&身體健康("be well/healthy")。後來因為變成了打招呼用意,所以直接被翻譯成問候語(Hi!)。

    Kia ora - the Maori greeting implies the breath of the personal life spirit emerging from their nose in greeting

    而碰鼻子就是要把自己這份美好的氣(像中國人說的"氣"血通暢或著日本人說的元氣)~利用這個打招呼模式傳給對方。
