Among the Uyakka, there are four primary gender presentations referred to throughout this language study as genders 1, 2, 3, 4, and neuter animate. The number genders are used by uyakka of specific fertility status and social positions. The neuter animate gender can be physically chosen by any of the four fertile genders or automatically assigned should fertility status be downgraded through physical inability, injury, or advanced age.

Children are assigned gender based on their physical presentation at birth. At puberty, most tribes allow for a gender affirmation ceremony as young adults pass into full adulthood. Some adults choose to enter Kǂohl socially before menopause, though this is uncommon. All genders experience a loss of fertility tied to menopause.
