The Navajo rifleman is a good choice if the resources are present to add the population free units to an army, though they lack power compared to more standard units from the various civilizations. This is due to their 3.0 firing speed, low LOS, short range, low ranged resistance and slightly higher cost. They have good movement speed for infantry and the ability to stealth in order to setup ambushes on enemy villagers, which is often how they are used by flesh and blood players.

- Navajo weaving is not very effective by itself due to the low number of hit points it provides.
- Navajo shepards can be extremely powerful if used by a civilization capable of mustering herdables quickly, such as the Chinese.
- Navajo craftsmanship is of little importance on a map lacking water, otherwise the bonus to fishing boats and land units would make it highly sought after. It could be useful to the Dutch due to their villagers costing coin rather than food and in long running games.
- 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.
The Navajo call their language "Diné bizaad", whereas many call it simply Navajo.
