Minor civ units in AoE3 have few lines compared to bigger civ's (which include the Lakota, as such major civ's, for instance), and minor civ's, unlike major ones, each only have one or two units, three techs (and three levels of upgrade techs to their units), and no special buildings - which is unfortunate. But the language thing is definitely there, I agree.The big problem about have one Pueblo Nation rejecting the use of their languae is that most of these nations are part of the All Pueblo Council of Governors, seems like Hopi are the only Pueblo not under this group. Still I think Navajo despite being not Pueblo (actually are kind of their "traditional enemies") could fit as the NA-SouthWest native civs by their incorporation of proper Pueblo elements like build Pueblitos and have Kachina dances and dolls. Also, the Navajo are the most* populous USA native nation and have the biggest reservation.
By the way the Navajo is a minor civ in AoE3 all with their units speaking Navajo so is clear they dont have a problem with be in a game. Funny thing AoE3 have Navajo, Apache and Comanche units but strangely dont have any Pueblo, maybe ES/MS already had the same problem that Firaxis with the Pueblo representation.
