AbstractThis article is an excellent study of Tucano kinship terminology and the extension and application of these kin terms to the various component sibs of the five major phratries. The data presented here were collected in the period from June 11 to Sept. 9, 1954, while the author resided in the hamlet of Guadalajara on the Paca River in the Comisaría Especial del Vaupés. As informant and interpreter, the author employed two brothers, Marcos and Manuel Sierra, respectively, both of whom were members of the patrilineal sib Urémiri Sáraro of the phratry Yepá Bajuári Majsá. Fulop was unable to visit personally the four other Tucano phratries -- Miriápura Diára Majsá, Nujkuá Diára Majsá, Miriápura Bajuári Majsá, and Emeko Bajuári Majsá --because of their great distance from his location at Guadalajara, therefore data pertinent to these kin groups are based on the information provided the author by Marcos Sierra.
