it is interesting reading this stuff but in the case a man is living by the side of a woman who has a daughter of appreciable age who regularly comes visiting her mun/per-adventure residing with her mother,the man fells heels over head in love with the lady and subsequently peradventure married should the man leave the neighbourhood for another? or even in the case of a man who lives at another flat in the case of foreign states that have couples of flats in the same building, should the man living downstairs in another flat also be bethrothed to a maiden of the family upstairs & eventually became wedded shouldnt they live in the building? yes they could would possibly be the answer but would you call that matrilocal too? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:37, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Hopi and Puebloan[edit]

I'm not sure how to reconcile the likely overlap between Hopis and Puebloans (I've just added the Puebloans (Pueblos) to the article; the Hopis were already in it). I doubt they should be separate. The book I cited for the Puebloans says at p. 5, "the Western Pueblos include the Hopis of Arizona". I've returned the book to the library and probably won't get it back. I hope someone else knows more than I do about this. Please feel free to edit. Nick Levinson (talk) 22:23, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

indigenous peoples[edit]

The following came mainly from a recent revision of the matriarchy article, but I don't feel qualified to edit this article based on this sourcing, so I'd rather offer it for anyone else to consider researching and editing. Nick Levinson (talk) 17:55, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
