Native warriors are a class of units in Age of Empires III and its expansion packs.

Native warriors can be trained by building a Trading Post on a native tribe or religious community settlement. They cost food and wood and do not take up population space, but have a build limit which can be increased by building Trading Posts on other settlements of the same native tribe or religious community. Native warriors can be upgraded to Elite and Champion levels (or Disciplined and Honored in case of religious communities), and by researching Legendary Native Warriors or Exalted Natives which upgrades them to the Legendary level (or Exalted in case of religious communities).

From The WarChiefs, players can build Native Embassies to train native warriors at locations beyond the Trading Post site.
