The War Hut is the basic infantry-producing building available to the Aztec, Iroquois, and Sioux civilizations in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs. It also functions as a defensive building and is able to fire upon enemy units in a similar manner to the Outpost. It is similar to Russian Blockhouse due to the fact that they are able to both train infantry and defend the colony.

History Edit

"In both North American and Mesoamerican cultures, warriors were critical to the defense and survival of the tribe.

On the Great Plains, warrior societies emerged - complete with their own dances, songs, and costumes. Prestige was typically bestowed based on an individual's acts of courage during battle, such acts as stealing weapons, horses, and counting coup.

In Aztec society, membership in the calpulli established each individual's religious and secular schooling, as well as how they would be trained in warfare. The men of a calpulli served together in battle and on the numerous public works projects. The Aztec soldiers wielded weapons of wood and stone, and they often sought prisoners to be sacrificed in religious ceremonies.

For the Iroquois, the longhouse stood as the central symbol of religious and civic life. In fact, the name they call themselves - Haudenosaunee - means "People of the Long House." It was in the longhouse that the Grand Council of the six member nations of the Iroquois Confederacy made decisions regarding matters of war and peace.
