Kashmiri kinship and descent is one of the major concepts of Kashmiri cultural anthropology. Hindu and Muslim Kashmiri people living in the state of Jammu and Kashmir in India and other parts of the world are very similar, which helps trace Kashmiri kinship and descent.

A significant section of the Kashmiri community form a social group whose members claim common ancestry. Both the Kashmiri Hindus and Muslim society reckons descent patrilineally. Certain property and titles may be inherited through the male line, but certain inheritances may accrue through the female line.

Kashmiri Lineages, clans, phratries and moieties

Kashmiri lineage as a descent group demonstrate a common descent from an apical ancestor. The prevalence of common clan, family, and surnames among contemporary Hindu and Muslim Kashmiri groups is indicative of a common descent group. Examples of other such clans are Scottish, Irish, Tlingit, Chechen, Chinese and Japanese clans.

Kashmiri Hindu and Muslim phratry are a descent group containing at least two clans which have a supposed common ancestor. Kashmiri society is divided into two descent groups, or a moiety, after the French word for half.


The name "Kashmir" means "desiccated land" (from the Sanskrit: Ka = water and shimeera = desiccate). According to Hindu mythology, the sage Kashyapa drained a lake to produce the land now known as Kashmir.
