Now this will be hard to write down as it is a gesture..........polite of course and acknowledges to another person, "hello".
1. Tilt your head, from front to back.....ummm as if your shaking a fly off of your head....please note this is only one shake, do too many and your head will fly off...lol.

2. In the same motion, raise your eyebrows...this may take some practice and is better to perfect it before you attempt it in public.

No, im not having you on.........or am I? (NO)

othercontact: Maoris that you meet, like me!
