Egalitarian

Egalitarian: My username refers to a type of society.  Egalitarian societies are usually considered “primitive” and all members of the society are considered equal.  Inequalities in wealth and power do not exist.  Members of these societies that possess more natural ability at tasks such as hunting are still recognized for their natural ability, but they are not able to gain more wealth or power because of their skills. An example of an egalitarian society is the Hadza people of Tanzania.  I’ve included a link for more information about the lifestyle of this group.
