#1 A gathering of tribal elders

Somehow the use of this phrase in the 21st century rings a cracked bell to me. The modern world doesn't work well with tribes........even if they do have flags.

#2 A gathering of tribal elders is not much different than having a meeting of "community leaders" in US cities.

The tribes in the latter are just a bit more amorphous.
