National Museum of Man: Mercury Series, Canadian Ethnology Service Paper No. 58. "This work is an examination of the operation of the kinship system of the Mission Chipewyan. It examines the utilization of kinship terms by this group of Caribou-Eater Chipewyan and the conflict inherent within their system. The sources of the conflict are derived from the Chipewyan utilization of both relative age and genealogical position as a means of categorizing kin as well as the overlap in fucntions of the kindred and thehunting unit. Analysis of marriage and the role of affines is included and the non-age-ranked ties between siblings-in-law are shown to be crucial to group formation in this society." - from the abstract.
