I've always assumed tribalism was more of the center - territorialism.
And I've come to this mostly because animals don't give too much of a
shit about things other than their local turf, and because the outsider
is usually an enemy. So the tribe is the important family to protect, and
one's location in the tribe is ego territory.
But, it is a big, innate, mix.
Evolution and culture feeds it all as well as demanding most of the table.
