Kinship Relationships and Expectations

The kinship system includes how to interact with your relatives. The older person of each relationship is treated with respect by the younger relatives.  Grandparents are respected by the entire tribe. One way they are shown respect is when there is a feed, elders eat first. Mother teaches her daughter her role and Father teaches his son his role to his family, community and tribe. The extended family also contribute to teaching.
