the seven principles that any tribal leader can implement in a growing or emerging community

1. Boundary: The line between members and outsiders.
2. Initiation: The activities that mark a new member.
3. Rituals: The things we do that have meaning.
4. Temple: A place set aside to find our community.
5. Stories: What we share that allows others and ourselves to
know our values.
6. Symbols: The things that represent ideas that are important
to us.
7. Inner Rings: A path to growth as we participate.
