"Ranged Native American archer with a short range and high attack."
In-game description

The Seminole Sharktooth Bowman is a ranged infantry native warrior in Age of Empires III that can be trained trained at a Trading Post built on a Seminole settlement.

Overview Edit

Seminole Sharktooth Bowmen are similar in damage to Crossbowmen, however they have much less range which is offset somewhat by the fact they fire twice as fast. If the guerrilla wars upgrade is purchased, they are far more effective at destroying buildings (particularly Outposts and Town Centers due to higher ranged resistance) than Pikemen, though they cost slightly more.

History Edit

"The Seminole People are an offshoot of the Creeks. They left the traditional Creek lands and emigrated to Florida in the eighteenth century. For the most part, their cultural traditions maintained those of the Creeks. The Seminole fought two wars with the United States. The Second Creek war lasted for seven years and is the longest and costliest Native American War in US history.

The Seminole favor geometric patterns in their dress, and quickly embraced European cloth, especially wool, which they made into leggings. Red and blue were popular colors in their dress. Modern Seminoles have developed a patchwork style of clothing with colorfully repeated patterns, some of which represent Seminole beliefs and legends.
