Hare - Kinship

Kin Groups and Descent. There is no concrete indication that descent has been other than bilateral, despite certain terminological and marriage patterns linked elsewhere to unilineality. The Hare have used both consanguineal and affinal ties to join a specific residential group, which usually has as a core several people closely related by blood. No descent groups form.

Kinship Terminology. For the traditional Hare, terminology in the first ascending generation was a mixture of bifurcate collateral (females) and bifurcate merging (males). In one's own generation, Iroquois cousin terms were used; and teknonymy was common.
