The Real Life Tribe is a group of people looking to get back in touch
with nature by giving up the destructive use of modern technologies.
We are a people that believe in the value of living off the land and
particularly in a strong communal way of living. Through our actions
we aspire to show the world the rewards of truly sustainable living and
that all living things deserve a degree of respect.
Our intentions are to legally purchase a real estate property, on which
we will be able to form our culture. For meat, we hunt. For fruit or
vegetables, we either gather or farm. For water, we use natural
We aim to construct any buildings we may need using only materials
found onsite, and only using traditional techniques.
To make the Tribe safe and legal, however, we must compromise in
certain areas, shown below:
- Our location must not be more than two hours from the nearest
- Due to the multinational nature of our group, we must legally
immigrate to the host country.
- There will need to be an emergency centre onsite, constructed of
sturdy man-made materials, which will house all legal documents and
communications technology. Our aim is to have this station powered
by entirely renewable methods.
Current estimates suggest that the tribe’s trial run will begin in 2013-
14. Much of this time will be spent in either fundraising or training.
