AbstractThis is a brief summary of salient aspects of Sama-Bajau social organization, focusing on culturally-expected reciprocal rights and obligations among members of households, kinship groups, and residential communities. The discussion emphasizes the effects of traditional boat-dwelling and migratory fishing practices, favoring the continuity of smaller nuclear families, a flexible residence pattern, and inter-household alliances across communities.
