A gunsmith is an indispensible asset with the skill to produce and maintain firearms.
The Europeans brought guns to the Americas, but the native tribes have not been slow to adopt them. A gun is a status symbol for a warrior, and needs care if it is to work properly. The smiths of many tribes have learned to repair and even manufacture firearms, following the invaders' patterns.
For the most part, Native American tribes gained guns through trade or from vanquished foes. One of the earliest guns to become available to them was a lightweight, smoothbore, French flintlock musket, thanks to the trading and political policies carried out in New France (Canada). The French gave "their" natives guns in the hopes of discomforting British Settlers.
