In the old Maori language used in Aotearoa, our NZ cousins call a nose-rubbing welcome a hongi and a pit barbecue a hangi.
They are both warm, that's for sure.
If you encounter Maori people and they give you a hongi and a hangi, you are in for a great time. If, on the other hand, they do that war haka with the throat-cutting gesture, run away quickly unless you are watching the All Blacks!
Anyway, the British Empire arrived and now these words are part of English too. The sun will never set on the English language, even if England itself is a shrinking state of mind!
