Abstract: In this article G. N. Appell makes the case that the Rungus form a cognatic society without kindreds. They do not recognize any specific subset of cognates, which could be construed as kindred. Rather the field of cognates comprises a collectivity from which the corporate social groups of family, village and long-house are formed.
