The Kanya Horseman has lower hit points and attack than the Hussar or Sioux cavalry, and is unique in the fact that it costs food and wood instead of food and coin like most other cavalry as well as being slightly cheaper. They do x1.75 vs. Artillery, making them more effective than most hand cavalry vs Artillery. They are also good for raiding enemy Settlers in early ages.
- The weapon used by the Kanya Horseman is a gunstock war club, an indigenous weapon used by Native Americans. Indigenous tribes of America most likely created the design of the club based upon European firearms.
"The Iroquois were a woodland people, so did not live in good horse country. Naturally, they adopted horses from the European colonists, but the Six Nations’ warriors were usually more comfortable fighting on foot. Despite this, the advantage of horses for scouting and quick raids was so obvious that the Iroquois did use them in warfare when they were needed."
