Tangihanga and Funeral guidelines

Tangihanga and Funeral guidelines

31 March 2020

COVID-19 – _Kua rāhui te motu 

Ministry of Health

Tangihanga – a need to adapt our practises during this extraordinary time. 

Bereaved families and whānau from all cultures and backgrounds will find this challenging. This makes it even more important that we show each other kindness and caring, manaakitanga and aroha.

Already iwi and hapū have been adapting tikanga and kawa to keep our people safe. This has also been extended to tangihanga.

There are now strict rules put in place during Alert Level 4 for when loved ones have passed away. These rules apply to everyone, every culture, every religion.

We support the advice and guidelines shared by Te Ropū Whakakaupapa Urutā (The National Māori Pandemic Group) on tikanga, hui and tangihanga for Alert Level 4.

This means: 

  • No public funeral services whatsoever
  • No tangihanga at our marae, funeral homes, churches and other venues
  • No private whānau tangihanga at home.
