Endocannibalism can be typified by several examples, including:
- The Fore people: These Papua New Guinea natives practice a strictly codified endocannibalism in their funeral rites, where women and children play a large role.
- The Wari': This Amazon tribe uses cannibalism during funeral rites to transform their ancestors into spirits. A spirit may take on animal form to provide food to an ancestor's descendants.
- The Junkun tribe: The chief of these native West Africans consumes the hearts of his predecessors in order to create a place for himself outside of normalized society.
