Hoki Mai Ki Te Wā Kaingā.

 “We’re gonna keep sayin’ it ‘til you believe it, beautiful. You’re important now. You’re ours. Part of our lives.” 

In Maori culture, hongi is a way of greeting somebody. Not just that, it can symbolise the sharing of ones soul with another and welcoming them into their home, community and hearts. 

Eren and Jean do it at every opportunity to remind Marco he belongs.

Happy birthday Kenji, you fabulous human being <3
