Role in the Film
Matai is first seen during the song We Know The Way. He sings in a different language, Polynesian, and appears to be guiding the boats as they voyage to Motunui. He is most likely chief of Moana's ancestors. He starts the song and dances along with the other "ghosts." He then gives his necklace to the next chief, presumably his son.
He is later seen near the end of the film during I Am Moana (Song of the Ancestors) as a ghost. As the boats make their way past Moana, Matai nods to her in greeting.
- In Lithuanian, Matai means "measurements".
