The Screen Guide

The practice of customary adoption, referred to by Torres Strait Islanders as Kupai Omaskar, has been employed for many generations. The Chief Justice of the Family Court, Alistair Nicholson, is now making moves to have the practice legalised and for it to be recognised under Queensland Law. A move which hasn't pleased everyone. However, if this does happen, it may have implications for other traditional practices to be legalised through legislation. Part of ICAM series.
