Gender Related Social Groups

Social structure was neither male nor female oriented. Most residential settlements consisted of an extended family including a married couple, their unmarried children, and one or more of their married children of either sex and their spouses and children. Married couples moved among residential groupings of relatives at will and sometimes began a new settlement. Because of the pattern of preferential cross-cousin marriage, a group of brothers would often be married to a group of sisters; thus brothers and sisters might remain in the same settlement or one close by (30 minute walk). Raiding parties were usually made up of intergenerational groups of males, such that one's father, grandfather, uncles, brothers, nephews, and sons might all go on the same raid together. There were no important nonkin associations for either males or females.
