Mark Mancina and Phil Collins composed the score of the 2003 film Brother Bear as well as its soundtrack and unofficial complete score. "Funeral" was written to represent the scene in which Kenai's tribe mourns the death of Sitka.[1]

In the film

Kenai and Denahi look on as Tanana releases Sitka's spirit to the skies, during which "Funeral" is heard

"Funeral" is heard in Brother Bear as a representation of the scene in which Kenai's tribe mourns the death of Sitka. The score picks up immediately after Sitka's death, as the tribe gathers to honor his passing and release his spirit to the skies. It plays over the funeral, including Tanana's ritualistic burning of Sitka's totem. The piece continues as Kenai makes preparations to hunt and kill the bear that was responsible for Sitka's death and concludes as Kenai returns to invite Denahi to join in on the hunt.
