Ancestral veneration in Tanzania cuts cross World Religions: Christianity, Islam and African Traditional Religion. Church programs on nurture and retention seek to teach new members how to abstain from forms of ancestral veneration present in their communities.
Practiced by more than 7 million people, indigenous religion burial services differ greatly among the tribes of Tanzania; however, in all tribes the dead are alive in a way that they hear, see, and are able to cause pain, suffering, or happiness to the bereaved. Faithful Adventists continue facing problems from the community because they reject the indigenous beliefs.
