In this article, Aberle attempts to make more
comprehensible the 'amorphous character of Navajo kinship organization' (p. 1).
In particular he describes the 'coresidential kin group' or CKG. The CKG is made
up of a portion of a matrilineage and its function is to defend its territory
and to manage land use.
