Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article describes Suku social organization, which combines matrilineal lineages with a patrilocal residence pattern. Previous anthropologists have viewed these two patterns as inherently contradictory and unstable. Empirical observation of Suku family life and kinship groups suggest that these assumptions are rather simplistic and that the Suku are able to employ a wide variety of mechanisms to maintain both institutions and practices.
