"tribe" is NOT an outdated term. Modern day anthropologists and historians still use it. So did many Native Americans I now.

I'ts only the libtards who wear their sensitivities on their sleeves who seem to have a problem. Usually middle class suburbia soccer moms with too much time on their hands and a crappy sex life, but I see now that it not the only demographic.

LOL
Are you sure this is the right forum for you? Don't you rather want to stay below Youtube videos?

Swaggabraindead is quite right--the expression "Tribe" really pisses off people who used to belong to tribes, but don't any longer--so the word should be banned as racist--or something. It's like the word "species"--a pointless term that is viciously divisive as it is designed to separate rather than unify different branches of the animal kingdom. At it's worst, the term seeks to vilify those who find love and affection outside their own taxonomic unit--this is especially hurtful to owners of camels, sheep and goats.

Don't call me braindead, boy. You are not even able to read the OP to see what my actual point was.

My history professor is friends with a Native American (Algonquin). His friend said that the different groups of Native Americans should be called nations, not tribes.

Hence the Canadian term "First Nations".
