Kinship in Rireinutire (with subtitles)

9 Favourites
The basic kinship terms of Rireinutire in convenient chart form. To a viewer used to Human cultures this chart may seem slightly odd due to Rireinukave biology.

For the convenience of those of us whose Rireinutire may be a little rusty this version of the chart features transliterations of the text in Human script (Revised Standard orthography). For a clean version, see Kinship in Rireinutire.

The legend (kehipoka) at the bottom of the chart describes the symbols used:
huto  ego
peakave  relative
rope  male
titatusi  descent
riasa  marriage.

Cool, matriarchal society, with strictly female marriages?
Definitely a neat, different idea.

The diagram does seem a little bit too large, though.
I could only find a few people who got the same name, that seems unwieldy?

Thank you! You might actually say the Rireinukave are obligate lesbians.

The Rireinutire kinship system might be on the large side, but there are even worse ones on Earth.
