    joined/entered

    Can I say...

    It made me feel so bad that I stayed hours trying to understand why you joined/entered in that tribe.

    Re: joined/entered

    ***Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.***

    I believe you should use join here.

    You can enter a room, but you cannot join a room.

    Joining something means that you confederate with it.
    I can join the army, a clan, a tribe etc.

    Try to imagine that enter means to go into something.

    P.S: A confirmation by teachers/others would be nice...

    Cheers!
