This mod adds the Sahaptin as a selectable culture in the Ancient Era. No other cultures are replaced, and the mod does not change anything outside of this specific culture.
The Sahaptin are also part of my Culture Super Pack.
The Sahaptin have their own Legacy Trait, Emblematic Quarter, and Emblematic Unit. Info below:
Legacy Trait: Rush of the Falls: +1 Money on exploited River tiles; +1 Faith on exploited River tiles
Emblematic District: Cataract Fishery: +5 Food; +3 Money per adjacent exploited River tile; +2 Food per adjacent exploited River tile; +1 Trader Slot; -10 Stability; Must be built on a River tile but does not need to be adjacent to another district
Emblematic Unit: Canoe Warriors: Replaces Warriors; 20 Combat Strength (instead of 19 for Warriors); Unlocks at City Defense (like Warriors); Ignores movement penalties from rivers
Culture Trait (not passed on after advancing to another culture): At Home at the River's Edge: +3 Combat Strength on River tiles (this eliminates the combat strength penalty from rivers on all Sahaptin units)
If you encounter bugs, please let me know! You can find me on Reddit, Steam, and Discord under the name uncle2fire.

This mod is compatible with my other added culture mods EXCEPT FOR the Culture Super Pack. This mod has not been tested with any mods made by other creators.
Credit and many thanks for the art for the Canoe Warriors goes to kul!
Who are the Sahaptin?
An ethno-linguistic group from the Columbia Plateau of the Pacific Northwest of the United States, the Sahaptin were at the center of a wide-ranging trade network, centered at Wyam, or Celilo Falls, on the Columbia River. They harvested vast numbers of salmon as they ascended the narrow cataract to spawn, drying them and trading them for goods from across the region: from the Pacific Ocean to the Rocky Mountains. Their villages, centered along the Columbia and Snake Rivers and their many tributaries, included Wyam and Wishram, which were permanently inhabited for at least 10,000 years until they were submerged after the construction of The Dalles Dam in 1957.
