A peer-to-peer model of learning has been promoted as an appropriate model of informal adult learning in the Pacific. This chapter discusses the extent to which anthropo-linguistic evidence of social relationships is reflected in peer-to-peer interactions in the matrilineal Longgu community of North-east Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands. The chapter explores gender differences in information sharing patterns. These differences reflect the responsibilities that men have to their sister’s children, and women have to their own children. The chapter contributes to an understanding of peer-to-peer learning in the Pacific, and to understanding the social consequences of matrilineal inheritance. The chapter explores the relationship between matriliny and kin relations within a family-based agricultural project.
