Among which people human males were not understood to be a part of reproduction?

Australian Aborigines
Apaches
Inuit tribes
Bushmen
Among the Tiwi of the Melville and Bathurst islands off the northern coast of Aus­trali­a, females were be­trothed at birth. Females in this society were always married. This practice was related to the Tiwi belief that females became im­preg­nat­ed by child spirits. However, Tiwi society also required that every in­di­vid­u­al has a "social father" - a husband of the chil­dren's mother.
