Matrilocality appears formerly to have been more common than patrilocality throughout central and southeastern Labrador, and there are still strong ties between a man and his daughter's husband. The father-in-law makes canoes and snowshoe frames for his son-in-law, who in turn, shares small catches of meat or fish with him.
