The Irish sept, the Scottish clan, thtphara of the Albanians, and the Sanskritic ganas were likewise similar to the Iroquoian organization, which Morgan finally decided was common to all American Indians as well as many Africans and Asians. "A gens, therefore, is a body of consanguinei descended from the same common ancestor, distinguished by a gentile name, and bound together by affinities of blood" (1877:61).
