    I don't know if there are any, though I doubt it's always been the case that team sports have been part of every society either. Taking a quick look around the internet, in spite of a lot of armchair commentary, there's no actual scientific evidence of team sport activity early on.

    Cultural conditioning probably tends to overwrite biology in regards to behavior, both individually and within the group.

    Religion is another practice, like sports, which I'd say is not natural but learned via cultural conditioning. That doesn't make religion right or necessary, only a historical fact.

    Tribalism is a division within the social structure. Some people obviously believe it to be necessary, however, I don't see that as qualifying tribalism as a condition of the species.
    Do you define tribalism as something distinct, compared to other grouping behavior in the animal populations (family, clan, troop, herd, flock, neighborhood, etc.)

    Well, daughter sent us pics from grandkid's prom night.
    The young man who took her to the dance is a surfer and I've never seen him in anything but shorts and flip-flops. But, I have to say that he cleans up very well, and he was the perfect gentleman, according to my daughter.
