I recently saw the question "what is a tribal rug?". It leads me to
wonder what is tribal. Would this mean Pastoral Nomads? I have been told
that until recently Anthropologists used the term €Tribal€ but that it is
out now of favor. Can any of you give me some information on this.

Thank you for any help that you may be able to give.
