We Have Lost Our Tribe

Author Dr. Bud Holcomb

Great Apes have evolved for 220 million years, and humans have evolved for 300,000 years, genetically identical to who we are today. We lived as hunters and gatherers for the majority of those years. Approximately 10,000 years ago, as agriculture began, we abruptly ended that lifestyle. Once we acquired ‘Property,’ we had to stay put to manage and protect it. We were no longer nomadic and no longer lived together.


Living in a tribe creates strong social connections. It provides guidance and much more excellent knowledge through consensus, regulates behavior, and provides emotional support during hard times. Primates, including humans, can only have rationality within a tribe or group. Only a group can effectively resolve conflicts, establish laws or norms, and promote harmony. Since we have lost our tribe, we are left only with the caretakers we were born to make sense of it all.
