The tribe I wouldn’t join

By Kenneth Cohen

I was recently invited to join a new North American “tribe.” No it was not the rainbow tribe, the eagle tribe, the bear tribe, etc. (I mean the humans who call themselves “bear tribe”, not the more legitimate tribe of bears.)

It was unclear to me if any members had Indigenous North American ancestry. The tribe is offering spiritual adoption to as many people as possible, apparently believing that greater numbers may lend more legitimacy. Then, claiming legal protection as a tribe, they may be free to practice their version of Indian religion and healing without U.S. government interference.
