    I am looking for a word that is used to describe secret meeting place for members of a particular tribe or clan. Does a word exist for that?

    Hideout comes to mind but it implies a clandestine meeting. Not sure it applies to a tribe or a clan.

    'Canberra' is actually a word derived from an Aboriginal word which means 'meeting place', though not actually indicating a secret tribal meeting place.

    I think the word you're looking for is 'clique'

    These might work: hideaway, niche, nook, cranny, cove, retreat, den, alcove, cell, shelter, hot spot, joint, watering hole, dive or corner.

    Den feels closer to what I am looking for. But still searching.
