Huron Confederacy
The Huron Confederacy is a minor faction in Empire: Total War, and a playable faction in The Warpath Campaign DLC. The Huron Confederacy is in Southern Canada near the Michigan Territory.


The Huron-Wyandot, or "Wendat" in their own language, are four tribes who speak similar language and occupy lands in the central northern part of the continent. Hardy trappers and traders, the Huron-Wyandot came into contact with French explorers in the early part of the seventeenth century, and forged an alliance based on trade. The chance to gain the upper hand over their hated Iroquois neighbours was also welcome. The French approached the Wendat as they were the least suspicious of European settlers and the most advanced traders, but by naming their new partners "Huron" meaning "ruffian", they showed their true feelings of superiority. As allies of France, the Huron-Wyandot naturally became enemies of the British and the Thirteen Colonies, but they supported Great Britain during the American War of Independence. They realised that the United States intended to expand westwards into their territory. Now the smoke of battle has cleared, the Huron-Wyandot's goals remain the same: destroy the Iroquois and keep the United States from taking their native lands.

General InformationEdit

In the vanilla version of Empire: Total War, the Huron Confederacy pose an initial danger to Great Britain due to the speed with which it can train a large army with which to threaten British-controlled Rupert's Land, made likely by their historical animosity towards Great Britain and their historical friendship with France, Britain's natural enemy. The Huron Confederacy are difficult to completely eradicate due to their remote North Western territory.

The Warpath CampaignEdit

The Huron Wyandot are one of the playable factions in the Warpath Campaign DLC. They gain access to Ojibwa Warriors, Petun Wolf Warriors, and Ojibwa Horse Warriors.


  • The flag used by the Huron Confederacy is based on the turtle symbol of the Wyandotte Nation. However, this is anachronistic as this symbol was designed in the 1970s.
