Kupay Thoeridhan is a tradition that has been practiced for many generations.

The umbilical stump is placed in the ground, with a fruit bearing tree (commonly coconut or mango) Planted to signify affiliation with the traditional land. This practice strengthens the connection a traditional owner has to the land they occupy.
