Description

Description: The Port Keats dataset contains 216 individuals. Based on a genealogical census undertaken in 1950, it is derived from the kinship and marriage connections mentioned in Falkenberg and Falkenberg 1981. It concerns 173 named persons (numbers 1 to 173) included by the authors in the alphabetically ordered table “Aborigines referred to in the text” (pp. 24-31), and 43 unnamed persons (numbers 180 to 222) who have been added by the coder following the authors’ indications of additional genealogical links.
Most individuals (99 of 173) are said to belong to the "Murinbata" (Murrinh-Patha) tribe; other tribes such as the "Mariŋar" (45 persons) and the "Magatige" (14 persons) are also represented. Tribe and clan membership is patrilineal.
For the 173 named individuals, attributes other than Name, Gender, and ALIVE (living = yes) are: TRIBE (individual’s tribe), CLAN (individual’s local clan), TRIBE_MOTHER (individual’s mother’s tribe), CLAN_MOTHER (individual’s mother’s local clan), TEXT_PAGES (page numbers on which the individual is mentioned), and TABLE_PAGE (page number of the alphabetical table in which the individual is mentioned).
