The Tribes

The Tribes

The Tribes refers to the collective groupings of Lizardfolk tribes inhabiting the jungle areas in the Snake River delta. The name “The Tribe” is a common language dynamic equivalence of the Draconic phrase “udokasvih” meaning literally “the group of us”.

While the term “The Tribes” refers to Lizardfolk civilization as a whole, it is in reality comprised of a number of smaller tribal units. Each tribal unit is a separate sociopolitical organization consisting of a number of families, clans, or other groups who share a common ancestry and culture and among whom leadership is typically neither formalized nor permanent.

Historically, there have been many periods where various confederations of Lizardfolk tribes have united under one banner. This confederation always refers to itself at The Tribes despite instances where the confederated unit has not included all of the individual tribes. Recently, King Nobu of the Daar Tribe, one of the most powerful and historically influential tribes, has began to consolidate the various tribes reviving historical consolidations in a group-politic similar to a human kingdom under his leadership. This new confederation uses the name “The Tribes” much in the same way.
