      Description

      When OpenMRS started, tribe was an attribute of the patient table. Over time, we developed the person_attribute table to hold implementation-specific attributes of people. Since not all implementation need/want tribe as part of the system, person_atttribute is a better place for it. One option would be to migrate tribe to person attributes over a couple OpenMRS updates (deprecating it in one and removing in another). Then a tribe module could be created to add the tribe functionality for those implementations who want it.
