Abstract: Indigenous peoples in Indonesia are very plural, so they have a variety of kinship or kinship forms, which cause diversity in patterns in the inheritance system. In general, the people in Nanggulan Village, Cawas District, Klaten Regency, recognize parental forms of kinship. Namely the balance of position between husband and wife or interesting from the line of father and mother, then there is a similarity in status inherited between boys and girls. However, in Nanggulan Village there were families who when dividing inheritance, only boys received inheritance from their parents, while their daughters did not get a share. This happens because of a factor, that girls who have married and have their own homes with their husbands and children, they are considered capable and do not need their parents’ property in the form of houses. Whereas boys who have married, are more prepared to obtain inheritance in the form of a place to live, because they are considered to have more responsibility than their sisters. Then there is the prevalence of a boy who has a status as a husband and must be responsible for providing a place to live or a house for his wife and child.
