But you are correct that he is inferring behavior of ancient tribes based on behavior of modern (but isolated) ones. The assumption would seem to be that what a modern isolated tribe needs for survival is much like that of an ancient clan.

I know of no aboriginal tribes that have not been pushed onto less attractive lands by modern land pressures and uses. Even coastal food supplies have been decimated by industrial trawlers. So I am not sure you can assume anything about ancient tribes not under land use and population pressures.
