The Hawaiian Kinship System is depicted on this Hawaiian Kinship Chart. The Hawaiian system is the least descriptive, combining many different relatives into a few categories. Ego only distinguishes between relatives based on sex and generation. Therefore, there is nothing like an uncle (the mother's and father's brothers are included in the same category as the father). The Hawaiian system is named after the pre-contact kinship system of the Hawaiian Islands' peoples. The Hawaiian system is now most widely used in Malayo-Polynesian-speaking areas. This Hawaiian Kinship Chart depicts a type of kinship that is most common in societies with ambilineal descent groups where economic production and child-rearing are shared.
