One tribe

Book cover, "Sandstorm in the Libyan DesertImage via Wikipedia "There were some tribes who held up their open palm against the beginnings of wind. Who believed that if this was done at the right moment they would deflect the storm into an adjacent sphere of the desert, towards another, less loved tribe.  There were continual drownings, tribes made suddenly historical with sand across their gasp." - from The English Patient by Micael Ondaatje.
