What was the last tribe in Europe?


Does someone know why we don't live in tribes any more, and what was the last European tribe in western Europe. This question just came to mind...

If I'm not wrong people in Montenegro still consider themselves members of certain tribes (similar to Scotish clans or so). I don't know about Albanians but imagine that even more present there.

Gypsies still live in a tribal way, in clans.

Sami and other finno-ugrics. But nations sorta evolved from tribes.

I was thinking of Roma. Certainly not defined by borders and I'm sure they were some way to gaining recognition from the EU a few years ago, but I've lost track.
