Learn More about Maori Funerals
If you've come here looking for more information on Maori funerals, you're in the right place. Originating from New Zealand, the Maori People have a range of traditional funeral customs that are still used widely to this day. Typically, the funeral will be the tangihanga, an enduring Maori ceremony for mourning the death of a loved one. It is commonly called a tangi, which also means to weep, and to sing a dirge (a lament for the dead). Usually the ceremony consists of a three day mourning period, where an open casket is displayed for this duration. Where it would usually happen on a marae, many Maori choose to do this in a hall or private home these days. Throughout this time people speak and give speeches, sing songs, and chant.
On the final day, a service is run, usually by a minister, priest or tohunga. Then the body is taken to the burial site or cemetery.
