Tribal

Famous quotes containing the word tribal:

    For tribal man space was the uncontrollable mystery. For technological man it is time that occupies the same role.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    What is this conversation, now secular,
    A speech not mine yet speaking for me in
    The heaving jelly of my tribal air?
    It rises in the throat, it climbs the tongue,
    It perches there for secret tutelage....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    In one notable instance, where the United States Army and a hundred years of persuasion failed, a highway has succeeded. The Seminole Indians surrendered to the Tamiami Trail. From the Everglades the remnants of this race emerged, soon after the trail was built, to set up their palm-thatched villages along the road and to hoist tribal flags as a lure to passing motorists.
    —For the State of Florida, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
