Dr Haddon has noted the following cases of adoption -
Muralug. Adoption into the same totem. Tugana (Uzi) had no children by his wife Siabi {Unoa),
adopted Zagra (Uzi) (17) when his father Waitu died and also Sak when his father (Zagra) died. Later he adopted Dati, Garab and Modani, the children of his dead brother Kobariz, who were thus his kazi. Similarly Butuma, "George Trooper," (Kursi), who had no children, adopted his dead brother's two children.
