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.
