There is very little history on the social organization of the tauren, but they seem to be grouped into "tribes" rather than "clans".

Main tribes:

  • Bloodhoof – The chieftain's own tribe.
  • Cliffwalker – A tribe living at Cliffwalker Post in Stonetalon Mountains.
  • Cloudsong – They picked up the role of spiritual leaders of the tauren shamans after the Skychaser tribe was nearly wiped out.
  • Darkmane – A tribe known for being a jack of all trades.
  • Dawnchaser – A tribe of tauren living in Krasarang Wilds.
  • Dawnstrider – The Dawnstrider tribe are experienced enchanters and skilled shamans.
  • Eagletalon – This tribe hunts the harpies of Mulgore.
  • Farwanderers – A tribe that once lived at Camp Narache in Mulgore.
  • Grimtotem – This tribe is the only dissenting tribe, refusing to join Cairne and the Bloodhoof, because they meant the Tauren tribes should not ally the newly arrive Horde.
  • Highmountain – A tribe with several notable members who fought (and still fight) against the Burning Legion.
  • Longstride – A tribe of tauren that resides in Azeroth and Outland.
