The Navajo Kinship System is depicted in this Navajo Kinship Chart. The Dine society is primarily based on kinship derived from clan affiliation. Each individual is a member of the group due to their association with one of the numerous Clans. Kinship education begins with the family, consisting of a man, his wife, and his unmarried children. The Navajo are a matrilineal and matrilocal society, with each individual belonging to one of four clans. The first clan is from the mother's side, the second from the father's side, the third from the maternal grandfather's side, and the fourth from the paternal grandfather's side. The clans are also depicted on this Navajo Kinship Chart. Kinyaa'áanii (Towering House), Honágháanii (One Who Walks Around), and Tó'dch'inii (Bitter) were the original four clans.
