The Eskimo Kinship System is depicted in this Eskimo Kinship Chart. The Eskimo system is distinguished by a bilateral emphasis (no distinction is made between patrilineal and matrilineal relatives) and recognizing differences in kinship distance (close relatives are distinguished from more distant relatives). The Eskimo and Iroquois systems use different terms for relatives on the father's and mother's sides; the Eskimo and Iroquois systems use the same period. The identification of the nuclear family is also shown on this Eskimo Kinship Chart. The Eskimo system does not distinguish between patrilineal and matrilineal relatives, instead of focusing on kinship distance differences (the closer the relative is, the more distinguished). The system also emphasizes the nuclear family, with only the mother, father, brother, and sister identified directly (lineal relatives).
