When the Catholic Church talks about the life issues, it usually uses the word "dignity". The Glittering Eye has a post up on tribes, Michael Jackson, and dignity from which I learned something new:

Being a member of a tribe is deep within each of us. Something to belong to; to share values with; to be defended by; to be a part of. Maybe it's something we learn. Maybe it's in our genes.

We recognize a member of the tribe by his or her look, by his or her demeanor, maybe by his or her smell. And we have a word that means that a person is perfectly a member of our tribe: dignity. That's from the Latin word dignus which means meet, proper, perfectly adjusted to the situation, need, or circumstance. Appropriate.
