Since the tribe is a large family, it provides its members with
much the same material benefits and social advantages that the
family provides for its members, for the tribe is a secondary
family. What must be emphasized is that, in the context of the
tribe, an individual might indulge himself in an uncouth man-
ner, something which he would not do within the family. How-
ever, because of the smallness in size of the family, immediate
supervision is not exercised, unlike the tribe whose members
continually feel that they are under its supervision. In view of
these considerations, the tribe forms a behaviour pattern for
its members, developing into a social education which is bet-
ter and more noble than any school education. The tribe is a
social school where its members are raised to absorb the high
ideals which develop into a behaviour pattern for life. These be-
come automatically rooted as the human being grows, unlike
classroom education with its curricula – formally dictated and
gradually lost with the growth of the individual. This is so be-
cause it is formal and compulsory and because the individual is
aware of the fact that it is dictated to him.
The tribe is a natural social “umbrella” for social security. By
virtue of social tribal traditions, the tribe provides for its mem-
bers collective protection in the form of fines, revenge and de-
fence; namely, social protection. Blood is the prime factor in the
formation of the tribe, but it is not the only one because affilia-



tion is also a factor in the formation of the tribe. With the passage
of time, the differences between the factors of blood and affilia-
tion disappear, leaving the tribe as one social and physical unit,
though it remains fundamentally a unit of blood in origin.
