It was customary for wives to be strangled when their husband died so that the man would not go into the afterlife alone. Usually it was the wife's brother who did the strangling. Fijiians practiced burials, leaving bodies in caves, cannibalism and cremation. Until the Christian missionaries came, graves were seldom marked. We currently have no information on Fiji monumental inscriptions in our collection.
