    I think Elam is a great civilization, but not to add in the game.

    Hittites, Assyria, Babylon are already missing, and Persia and Sumeria are still connected to Elam. We don't need much mesopotamian civilizations.

    The middle-eastern civilizations I want to see are :

    Phoenicia : Economic focused
    Palmyra : Culture focused
    Hittites : Military focused
    Kingdom of Sheba : Science focused
    Kingdom of Israel : Faith focused

    I proudly present you my version of Assyria's Semiramis/Shammuramat. See if it fits?

    Congratulations to the Cree for graduating from the Never Before seen Civs list! I've move them to the first list.

    Coloman the Learned should be added as a leader of Hungary.

    I found out about some more leaders for the Haida like Chief Edenshaw (not sure if this info is as accurate since the death dates are different), Chief Wiah/Weah, and Chief Skidegate. I found more on Edenshaw than the other two but hopefully more can be found out later (there's gotta be more info on Skidegate the Great and why he was great).

    If you add the Salish you can use Chief Seattle (Chief Si'ahl or Chief Sealth)

    Edit: And I see you did now.

    I added them to the list, but it's a shame we don't know more about them. :( Why are the Pacific Northwest Chiefs less documented than those of say the Sioux? Because that region was colonized later by Canadians?

    If Firaxis were to do PNW civs, they would have to contract their leaders for the rights to use their people anyways.

    That shouldn't really discourage Firaxis from attempting to put a PNW Civ in the game. Just contact the appropriate First Nation governments and see if they agree to their leader/ancestor and language being featured in a game.

    There wasn't quite as much war between the natives and the settlers in the PNW at least in the US. I believe Canada banned the potlach ceremony for quite a while but the tribes did it anyway quietly. The PNW tribes also got better lands for their reservations than many other tribes.

    I'm glad the leaders are becoming more diverse. I'd like to see Martin Luther King for America and Mary, Queen of Scots for the Celts.

    I have a dream.

    A dream to see Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lead the United States!

    After all, Gandhi led India for six straight numbered Civ titles and King was influenced by Gandhi.

    Why? He was American, a great leader and is famous throughout the world. Gandhi was never Prime Minister or President of India.

    Firaxis has never put a non-President as the leader of America in their games. That could change in the future, but MLK wasn't even a politician, just a Civil Rights activist/Reverend.

    Who knows if a future Civ title would have Benjamin Franklin?

    Furthermore, Gandhi was involved with Indian politics on a national and international scale, even if he was never the national leader of India. Also, he arguably held more influence and/or power than Nehru (India's leader at the time). MLK is even less fitting as a leader choice than Gandhi (I'll be glad to see Gandhi replaced as India's representative in future Civ entries).

    These objections seem to be based on a narrow definition of Leadership. Surely it's about the ability to inspire people to follow you. Julius Caesar, Boudicca, Hannibal and probably others I've forgotten were generals not kings or presidents. Martin Luther King certainly inspired people to participate in sometimes dangerous battles and who knows what would have happened if he hadn't been assassinated.

    I'll agree that MLK was an influential leader, just not the political kind. I just can't see Firaxis seriously considering using him as an American leader in their games. So far, nearly every American leader has been a President, except for Eleanor Roosevelt in Civ2.

    PS: Julius Caesar and Hannibal held political offices (Dictator, and Shofet respectively) before their deaths, Boudicca was the wife of a Britonic King.
