Tribal consciousness

What does that even mean? Back in the day and I guess to be fair – in some parts of the world, individuals and groups would identify themselves to a tribe. This tribal consciousness gave them a sense of belonging and identity. A few months ago, I was trying to figure out – who my people – is/are? Who would I identify with?
I think there is a safety and a stability about a tribal consciousness. I like being able to identify with a tribe. I guess, if I don’t work hard at it – it’ll be chosen for me. What other’s see will be what they think I am – and I guess in some way – that shapes identity as well. I think I’d rather be proactive about it though.
