Maori customs

Kia Ora, hello. I have been to Marae and slept in them. I like to share this with you.
When visitors come, the home marae "family" tangata welcomes them with a call, karanga. A guest female replies.
You take your shoes off at the entrance.
 The Hongi, greeting by rubbing nose. Or if the visitors are uncomfortable due to cultural reasons, it is ok to have a peck on the cheeks or just shake hand,
