double descent

double descent

or

bilineal descent

a system of DESCENT in which there are ‘Patriclans’ and ‘Matriclans’ within the same group. They may each be used for different reasons, for example, inheritance of land may be through the male and inheritance of names through the female. A consequence of this is that an individual is a member of both a PATRILINEAL and a MATRILINEAL DESCENT group.

While Beatty offers a critique of some aspects of alliance theory through his discussion of the specific features of affiance in central Nias, his conclusion that the Nias system occupies a transitional position between asymmetric prescriptive alliance, on the one hand, and double descent, on the other, is nothing more than a replication of Van Wouden's evolutionary model for explaining the multiple forms of marriage in Indonesia.
