    It is a Maori 'Hongi' or greeting.  From the NZ movie "Kiaora Bro.. Did you Bring a Beer?"

          Well, I think on his mother's side, he is, but he was born in Cali, USA. He's "racially ambiguous", I guess.

          Maori War Dance http://www.flightsafrica.co.uk/blog_images/Haka_dance.jpg

          Also performed by high schools and National sporting Teams, right after the National anthem.

    Yeah. I did too when I was younger. I didn't like him that much- he ripped off Steve Austin too much.

    That Maori dance- that's the Haka, isn't it? I've seen the All Blacks use it so many times, even though I'm not really into rugby.

    I hope South Africa loses. Well, sometimes I feel that way.

    I'm not very patriotic, it must be said. I like the place, but not the people.

    Lol  @ goodfriend
    ,no the picture was taken at Marae ( Maori meeting house) I think one of the tourist re-inactment demo of traditions etc.

    But if you ever travel downunder to New Zealand ,and visit a marae, you will be greeted exactly like that , gentle press of the nose wink if not well ya can always read my NZ hubs smile
