  • What's a Group of Primal People Called?

    Hello, everyone,

    I'm looking for a little feedback from the community. I'm working on building an infrastructure that organizes and supports local chapters/clubs of Primal enthusiasts and am throwing ideas around for what to call these groups. Since many of you will be making up these groups I thought I'd come to you to see what you think.

    Here are some ideas I'm throwing around:

    Primal Tribe
    Primal Clan
    Primal Band
    Primal Alliance
    Primal Pack
    Primal Colony
    Primal Club
    Primal Crew

    Do you have any creative ideas to add to the list?

    I like Primal Tribes but it seems to me that we're all part of the Primal Tribe and that local clubs should be a sub-group of the word Tribe. But maybe not.

    Maybe I'll do a poll after we have what looks to be the top picks. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    BTW - You may be wondering what these clubs will be all about. Primal Blueprint Fitness will be launched upon the world in just a couple weeks. Part of PBF is the MDA WOW (Workout of the Week). The WOWs will be fractal workouts with a focus on Lifting Heavy Things that will be perfect for group meet-ups. As the name says, there will be new ones every week to complement and enhance the standard PBF protocol. I know this is a bit ambiguous, but stay tuned for the official announcements and the release of the free ebook for more information!

    According to wikipedia (and my own mind), clans are (often) sub-groups of tribes. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clan). I'd go with Primal Clan.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

      I prefer the idea of a clan or a family group. The Tribe is the worldwide group of Primals, like you've mentioned, and generally, anthropologically speaking, those are a reference to the next step down. I generally use the term "local clan," myself.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          I like Primal Tribe as well. I also think that Primes sounds like name for a group of us than Primals though...not for any other reason than it sounds better though.

            Local Primal clan's -> part of of State/Providence Primal Tribes -> all integrating into the Primal Nation.

            Grok On.

              I like tribe, pack, or alliance.

              Clan has some very negative associations where I'm from (South Louisiana).

                i kinda see it this way, too - the entire primal community IS the tribe. i like either 'clan' or 'pack' to signify the smaller groups. maybe 'circle'? or 'kin'.

                  what the first few said because......

                  Tribe & Clan (in that order) are the only ones that actually "sound" Primal. The others are much too "modern day".

                  took me too long to post - and I really like Primal Nation - thanks Kev

                      It's a "murder of crows", so why not a "murder of primals"?

                            *cringe* Might just be me but the whole "____ Nation" thing is a bit overplayed these days.

                            I like a progression, from smallest to largest:

                            Pack
                            Band
                            Clan
                            Tribe (the entirety of the people in the "Primal" lifestyle)

                            Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

                            For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

                              Clan or Pack. Pack to me sounds most primal and to me, definitely highlights our animal nature. Clan fits reasonably well but makes me think "Scottish" - which is always a good thing in my mind, but perhaps not what you're going for.
