For me/us tribal simplicity represents a lifestyle that embraces the nature bound simplicity of our tribal ancestors infused with present day knowledge.

In essence we still need and seek the same things of life as our tribal ancestors have done. They were social creatures of habit and so are we and this name aims to point to this very nature of ours.

We are not attempting to create a carbon copy of how tribal people have lived. We merely seek inspirations that we will embody in our own unique ways as our community is forming.

On this journey we aspire to embody a harmonious lifestyle by cultivating understanding, respect, & care for all beings & natural systems through living mindfully.

We deeply care about our connection to the living Earth, ecology [1].
We deeply care about spending more time together and to create a supportive environment where everyone can thrive, social harmony [2].
We deeply care about fostering a sense of joy and belonging through rituals and celebrating natural cycles, spirituality & culture [3].

[1]: The ecological dimension represents our connection to the living Earth: the soil, water, wind, sun, fire, plants, and animals. It ranges from our expressed intention to save energy and recycle waste to more all-round commitment to low-impact living.

[2]: The social dimension refers to our desire to spend more time together, and to create a supportive environment where one can thrive both as a free individual and as part of the community. Residents are able to participate in making decisions that affect their own lives and that of the community on a transparent basis. The intention to stay present to each other, to stick with it, is the glue of our community. This requires that everyone of us concentrates their lives around their living space, re-adjusting their priorities, and their lifestyles.

[3]: The cultural-spiritual dimension represents fostering a sense of joy and belonging through rituals and celebrating natural cycles.
