In Tongan culture, funerals are significant events that bring together family and friends to honour the life of the deceased.
Tongan funeral traditions reflect the importance of family and community and are deeply rooted in the culture and customs of Tonga.
Tongan funerals typically involve a series of rituals and ceremonies that may span several days. The funeral service may include singing, dancing, and recitations of traditional Tongan prayers and hymns. The body is typically dressed in traditional Tongan attire and laid in a decorated casket, which may be carried by family members during the funeral procession.
