The Huron are a minor Native American civilization featured in Age of Empires III.


The Huron are available as allies on the Great Lakes, New England, and Saguenay maps. Once a Trading Post is built at their camp, a player can recruit Huron mantlets and research available upgrades.


Huron upgrades focus on boosting allied economies (fishing), and producing mantlets in larger numbers and shipping free mantlets.

Huron Sun Ceremony (Discovery Age)

  • Increases the number of mantlets each trading post can support by 200%.
  • Cost:225 Wood, 225 Coin

Huron Trade Dominance (Discovery Age)

  • Sends one mantlet for every two minutes of game time, up to a maximum of thirty minutes.
  • Cost: 400 Wood, 400 Coin

Huron Fish Wedding (Discovery Age)

  • Fishing boats and ships gather food from fish and coin from whales 20% faster.
  • Cost: 75 Wood, 75 Coin

Huron Warrior Societies (Fortress Age)

  • Huron attack and HP raised by 25%.
  • Cost: 200 Wood, 150 Coin

Huron Champions (Industrial Age)

  • Huron attack and hitpoints raised by 40%.
  • Cost: 400 Wood, 300 Coin


  • The Sun Ceremony can be useful in long running games for generating a huge army of fodder units, otherwise it's not very cost efficient.
  • Trade dominance is relatively useless due to its significant cost for such little reward. The maximum attainable number of mantlets is 15 with the upgrade, most players would be better off sending mercenary or native armies from their home city.
  • The Fish Wedding upgrade is the saving grace of the Huron, especially on maps with plentiful fish and whales. It is useful for any civilization going for a water boom, but stands out as extraordinary for strong water civilizations such as the Japanese. It's also very cheap, making it especially useful in the Colonial Age.
  • All native tribes can only be upgraded to Legendary/Exalted status at the Town Center or Capitol, they can be upgraded to Elite/Disciplined or Champion/Honored for free through some Home City shipments.
  • Civilizations can remove the upgrade gold costs, or cut the upgrade costs in half depending on their home city cards.

History Edit

"The name “Huron” is derived from the French word “hure,” meaning ruffian. A derogatory term, it was applied to the Huron. They once lived in territory that became southern Ontario. Over time, the various Huron clans dispersed across the upper Midwest, settling in Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

The Huron (also known as Wyandot) were an agricultural people who lived in small communities of as many as 1,000 tribal members. In their often heavily fortified villages, they constructed communal longhouses up to 200 feet long. Like the Iroquois, who spoke a related language, the Huron depended on the staple crops of corn, beans, and squash, with hunting and fishing providing additional food.

Also like the Iroquois, the Huron established a confederation of separate tribal nations, in their case, four. Established around the middle of the fifteenth century, the confederation ended wars of blood feuds between rival clans by laying out common guidelines for trade and the resolution of disputes. Membership in this confederation was strictly voluntary.

Experts at constructing birch-bark canoes, the Huron established a trade network that stretched beyond their homelands. The early French traders/explorers (voyageurs) established a relationship with the Huron that lasted for years, long after France’s influence on what became U.S. territory waned.

In-game dialogueEdit

The language spoken by the Huron units is probably Wyandot, a language related to those of the Iroquois.
