      Kinship is the key structure underlying human society: descent determines how wealth, land, and position are inherited across generations, whereas residence describes the rules governing where a couple should move to once they are married ().In turn, descent and residence patterns determine other key relationships within society such as alliance, trade, . The small size of Chacoan pueblos (matrilocal residences. The side-by-side spatial arrangement of pueblo rooms reflects social solidarity, which ethnographic data suggest is characteristic of matrilocal residence.

      In small bands of modern day hunter-gatherers there is a mixture of what anthropologists call matrilocal and patrilocal residence, the practice of women or men to stay within the community they're. Matrilocal residence accomplishes this, because the dishersal of males from their natal villages upon marriage results in the breakup of fraternol interest groups. This theory was tested on a probability sample of forty-three so cieties, using rigorous Narollian techniques and several statistical methods.

Matrilocal residence is found most often in horticultural societies. Examples of matrilocal societies include the people of Ngazidja in the Comoros, the Ancestral Puebloans of Chaco Canyon, the Nair community in Kerala in South India, the Moso of Yunnan and Sichuan in southwestern China, the Siraya of Taiwan, and the Minangkabau of western Sumatra.

The following list includes societies that have been identified as matrilineal or matrilocal in ethnographic literature. "Matrilineal" means property is passed down through the maternal line on the death of the mother, not that of the father. Matrilocal residence has been hypothesized for proto-Oceanic society (ca BP), but we find strong evidence that matrilocality was predominant in earlier Austronesian societies ca – BP, at the root of the language family and its early branches.

Our results illuminate the divergent patterns of mtDNA and Y-chromosome markers seen in. Sociologyindex, Sociology BooksMatrilineal Descent, Patrilineal Descent Matrilineal societies are those societies in which descent is traced through mothers rather than through fathers.

In matrilineal societies, property is often passed from mothers to daughters and the custom of matrilocal residence may be practiced. Patrilocal residence may stabilize a set of social-structural axes by centralizing both authority and the inheritance of property; for instance, in many matrilocal and/or matrilineal societies, women's brothers still act as heads of household over many decisions (Divale and Harris,Richards,Schlegel,Schneider, ).

This mechanism was suggested by W. Divale in Matrilocal Residence in Pre-Literate Society (). The suggested model also describes migration, internal warfare and cycle by which society turns back from matrilocal to patrilocal residence.

A note on terminology: I am concerned here with a cluster of institutions: matrilineal descent groups (groups based on descent through the female line), matrilocal residence (a man moves from his natal household to reside with his wife and her kin), and avunculocal residence (a man and his wife reside with his mother’s brother).

Definition of Neolocal Residence (noun) When a married couple live together in a new residence instead of with the husband’s family (patrilocal residence) or the wife’s family (matrilocal residence). Example of Neolocal Residence.

Two people meet at university and get married, moving into a new home together, without any additional family. However, in a society that practices patrilocal residence, it’s a cultural norm, or standard rule of behavior, that a couple must live with or very near to the man’s family.

In the same manner, in a society that practices matrilocal residence, the new couple is expected to live with or very near to the woman’s family. It’s simply the norm.

The Minangkabau people, a matrilocal society that is indigenous to the highlands of West Sumatra in Indonesia, believe that home is the place of women and they give men little power in issues relating to the home or family (Joseph and Najmabadi ).
