Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
The term lineage as discussed in this article is the
patrilineal descent group whose residence is the compound. Because of the legendary nature
of lineage origins in most cases, this group has been indexed as a sib. Centering his
attention on this kin based group, the author discusses various aspects of the physical and
social organization of Yoruba residence compounds, town, and government. The nature of
membership and legends of origin of some particular lineages are given, with an indication
of intra-cultural differences that occur. At the time of publication the author was a
Research Fellow in Anthropology at the West African Institute of Social and Economic
Research, University of Ibadan, Southern Nigeria. The author cites data from Oyo and Ekiti
as characteristic of most Yoruba subtribes.
