    The tribe is a social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities linked by social, economic, religious, or blood ties, with a common culture and dialect, typically having a recognized leader whereas race of humans is a grouping based on shared physical traits, ancestry, or genetics. Here we are giving the list of tribes and races in the World for general awareness.

    Tribes & Races

    About 90% of the world's population lives in the  northern hemisphere of which about 60% lives in Asia  alone; and 30% lives in the temperate latitudes (mainly  Europe) and barely 1 % lives beyond 60 north.  Asia is the most densely populated continent in the world followed by Europe (including Russia), South America and North America. China is the world's most populous country and about 20% of the world's population lives in China alone. The average density of population is estimated around 130 persons/km2 and that of India is 324 persons per km2. The Portuguese province of Macau (Macao) on the southern coast of China is the most densely populated territory.

    The essential characteristics for a community to be identified as Tribes are indications of primitive traits, distinctive culture, shyness of contact with the community at large, geographical isolation and backwardness.
