Succession Law – “child” of the deceased according to aboriginal tradition

Gundy v Eatts [2013] QSC 297

 A decision of interest having regard to the definition of a child by reference to the Acts Interpretation Act to include “descendant” and “descendant” was defined to include, in relation to Aboriginal people, “a descendant under Aboriginal tradition”. In turn, Aboriginal Tradition was defined to mean traditions, observances and customs in relation to, inter alia, relationships.
