Preserving the Cultural Integrity of the Great Hawaiki Nations.
Pacific Family Funerals was established in 1997, working collaboratively with A Gentle Touch Funerals to address the specific needs of the Hawaiki people. It is a very challenging time for Polynesian familys, losing a loved one in a foreign country.
Being over whelmed with grief and feelings of being displaced from the support of family and the community of their homeland. This is an added pressure on those who are already experiencing difficulties associated with grief, logistics and cultural requirements.
Staff at Pacific Family Funerals and A Gentle Touch Funerals are respectful of the Hawaiki people and will listen to the familys needs and arrange the Funeral Service that is appropriate to you and your loved ones belief, tradition and values.
We can tailor a funeral service that is held here, then arrange for repatriation to the homeland for interment.
