Critical Thinking Paper: Kinship Organizations

Kinship systems in Foraging and Horticultural based societies provide support for people in all stages of their life. Address the following in a two- to three-page paper:

  • Identify and describe the kinship system of one of the cultures listed below. These cultures are found in Chapters 3 and 4 of your text.
  • San
  • Australian Aborigines
  • Btsisi
  • Inuit of the Artic
  • Iroquois
  • Yanomamo
  • Briefly describe the culture and identify three specific examples of how the kinship system of the chosen culture impacts the way this culture behaves (i.e. thinks, acts, lives).

Compare this to your own society. Does kinship impact these same behaviors in your own life? Why or why not?
