The Hetanka have always been know for their intelligence and cleverness, but their willingness to except technology into their lives helped elevate themselves above all the tribes. While most tribes condemn the ways of the outside world, they use it to their advantage will remain true to their tradition. They have been considered one the most prosperous of the tribes as well as the most shunned as well. This makes them a target as well for anyone who wants to take what they have earned over the years. Which is why their land is heavily fortified to keep everyone out as well as making them prisoners of their own lands. During the Forest War, they told Hiawatha that would only fight the enemy on their own terms and they did when the enemy came. They left as quickly as they came when they were done with them, those who escaped were allowed to leave to be made as examples of what happens when you mess with the Hetanka. They did the same thing when the Norrians came along they just improved a lot of their traps to make thing more difficult. They haven't really done anything since and have been preparing for an enviable conflict that seems to just on the horizon the Vatian Empire
