Those are all still civilizations. The idea that nomads, barbarians, and anybody who dresses like native americans weren’t civilizations is literally racist propaganda used to justify dehumanizing and exterminating them. The word “barbarian” started as a slur for foreign speakers, because the Romans though everyone else spoke “bar bar bar.”

In anthropology these kinds of wrong stereotypes are known as the noble savage and ignoble savage.

The Horde meets all the criteria for being a confederation and an empire. It unites distinct ethnic tribes and expands through conquest. They practice animal husbandry, construction, writing...

Saying they’re anti-civilization is just absurd. If you applied the same logic to human beings then that would be obviously racist.
