The phrase "finding your tribe" is a total cliche — but one that does apply to certain situations. A Native American tribe is doing exactly the opposite of what you'd think they'd do: they're kicking people out of the tribe, huge numbers of them, including people whose ancestors without question were part of the tribe. And the story of a white guy who only wants to date Asian women, who finally convinces one to marry him: then has to adjust to the reality of a real actual Asian woman in his life. This American Life: Tribes airs Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD 91.5-2.
