Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This monograph is based on both primary field data and
secondary materials. It describes the kinship organization of the Western Apache and
attempts to reconstruct the historical development of this organization. The clan, phratry,
and local groups are the primary units with which this book is concerned. As part of the
author's discussion of the development of Apache organization, Kaut provides a section of
comparative materials on the kinship terminological systems of the southern Athapaskans. It
is Kaut's contention that the southern Athapaskans once shared a common culture and
diverged in response to differential ecological adaptations in the southwest.
