Keep in mind that Kir Dor'na'torna happened ~1,000 years ago. Most Nomads know who they're descended from and who shot who's great grandpa, as an expression of the veneration of their ancestors, but they've been mingling for a long time.
Antipathy towards guild politics can be traced back to something else. The Shamans are in a unique position of representing not just an organization (such as the Celestians) or a faith (such as the G'nar Pethians), but a small nation. The Moon Mages among the tribes are spiritualists, wise men, and sometimes leaders, but the tribes are composed of a lot of people that have as little to do with the Moon Mage Guild as someone walking down the street in Crossing.
Given their family bonds and isolation, the Shamans on the steppe have a tendency to think of themselves as Nomads first and Moon Mages a distant second. However, there's more than enough of them active in the guild power structure and running around out in the provinces to remain a viable sect.
