Description

Description: The Tlingit are a native American people who inhabited historically the region of the North Pacific Coast from the Portland canal to the Copper River delta in Alaska. Tlingit society is divided into two matrilineal moities (phratries), the Raven and the Eagle. These in turn are divided into clans, which are subdivided into lineages or house groups.
This Dataset contains 125 individuals (118 are present in the Mayer Durlach’s Tlingit genealogy, pp. 173-177) and 7 are additional women, according to informations present in the notes of the Chart).

In the « Name» field, the first number refers to the individual’s generation, the second to the individuals’ listing. In Mayer Durlach’s document the listing starts again from number 1 at each generation. Therefore, the individual « named » 4-3 will correspond to the third individual of the fourth generation. This listing was made in order to simplify the reading of the data, the transcription of Tlingit language being quite complicated (see table in the downloadable “tlingit genealogy” document). The original Tlingit names have not been coded in the dataset, however additional information accompanying these names in the source has been coded in the “Name information” field.
Some information concerning the individuals’ names, houses or clans of origin is also available. This is mentioned as attributes under their respective mentions.
