Native American Warrior Kneeling Firing

One observation Europeans made of Native American people during the early contact period was the Indians’ ability to fight concealed, behind objects, and with fluid movement over rough terrain. This skill would have been learned from years of stalking game, and it immediately gave them the advantage over European armies that continued to fight in line, in the open, as military doctrine then dictated. Wearing dark paint on his face would help break up a warrior’s silhouette making him almost impossible to see in a wooded environment thus creating a very effective technique for concealing his outline. Today we refer to this as camouflage and it is now an almost universal technique to help conceal soldiers in battle.
