The Algonquins were one of the indigenous people who dominated Lake Ontario and Mohawk River. Theoretically in-game, they would focus on infantry and archers. Just like their Central and South American counterparts (Aztecs, Maya, and Inca), they have no gunpowder or cavalry units.
To reflect on the ferocity of the Algonquins, most of the bonuses reflect their infantry units. Their unique unit is the Algonquin Maceman, a very fierce infantry unit that will slay a enemy unit once their HP is halved during their hand-to-hand combat. Their unique technology in the Imperial Age would make the Barracks units deal double blows per attack.
Because their home is in the dense forests, much of the economic bonuses reflect on wood efficiency.
