Death Related Customs

Funerary customs, burial customs, and mourning customs are prolonged and complex in certain societies. A very full description is provided by Kerns (1983) for the Garifuna of Belize. Although men participate in the burial procedures and in the funeral celebration, it is Garifuna women who actually bear the major responsibility for carrying out the complex customs ushered in by death. This uneven division of labor is typical of many societies, as are the more elaborate observances at a man's death than at the death of a woman (Friendly, 1956).
