Tribelet is a term used mainly in the study of the Native peoples of California to describe a social unit which was smaller and less hierarchically organized than a tribe.

The term was coined by A.L. Kroeber in the Handbook of the Indians of California,[1][2] and elaborated on in The Patwin and their Neighbors.[3]
