Description

Indigenous kinship systems are complex structures of social organisation that determine ones behaviour, responsibilities, rights and identity within their clan. This system is very important in Indigenous life as it provides the foundation upon which all social organisation in the clan is built. This also includes laws, marriages, social interactions and spiritual connections.
