Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Thanksgiving is in a way a time when our various Tribes gather together. We travel from where ever we're living to where ever our larger family is - it may be over hundreds of miles, or just across town. But it's a time for us to renew our relationships with those who have been in our lives from the very beginning.
So, what is a "Tribe"? Anthropologists don't really have answers, but they have a lot of theories, and of course, lots of papers written about those theories.
This week, let's take a look at some of those theories, and see if we could come to a better understanding of how humans organized themselves in earlier times, and how some humans organize themselves even today.
And, are we STILL tribal? Some say Yes, and some say that that may be our saving grace in the long run!
Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include Carlton Walker: "The Tribe"; Blackmore's Night: "Village in the Sand"; Delores Keane: "Solid Ground"; Double Helix: "We Approach the Sacred Grove"; Danielle At the Sandwhich: "The Terrible Dinner Guest" and more.
