A tribe is a group of individuals, banded together to pursue a mutual goal. Although the term itself is value-neutral, its connotations encompass a pejorative element: the term "tribe" generally refers to a proto-political unit, rather than an organized political unit. Some ancient cultures - like the Twelve Tribes of Israel, and the Tribes of Rome - retained the definition, and some modern cultures today do, too.
