Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This monograph is an analysis of the Northern Blackfoot (Siksika) kinship system. The kin terms are enumerated, their ranges of application discussed, and behavior between specific classes of relatives is examined. The authors then relate several classificatory principles evident in the terminological system to general patterns of Northern Blackfoot social interaction. Points of structural weakness and current changes in the kinship system are considered, and some comparative data highlighting differences in the usage of kin terminology between the three major Blackfoot divisions are also given.
