Stop use the word tribalism, kthx

And here's a twitter thread that explains what you actually mean if you're saying tribe anyway

and as it says, Natives can say tribe. this is for all the rest of y'all and the weird ways you say that word and related terms. It's really... gross honestly.

Yes indeed!

"Tribe" is also a terrible way to mush together social, legal, governance and kinship systems. A bit like using the same term to cover "the city of Munich", "the clan MacDonald", "Flemish people", and so much more.
