  I agree with you JuanPaWarthon.
Mapuche's units are good against everything.They are, I think, the best civ in game.Their only weakness is thier Tribal council is weaker than others, but can still be using to explore. 
One of the most common strategies that I use is spamming villagers and ship food crates. On age 2, I spam Trangelafs. Once age 3 is reached, I start spamming Malons.
But new Haitians civ is even more brutal.

"That's why I tried to create Grenadies and Cannons backed up by skirmishers to counter them, but I fail every time."

Against fast melee units you need some strong front line units, like halbs or muskets (or equivalents).
Also, you should make use of huntables and mines in the early game instead of building farms and plantations. They produce much faster.

However, I do agree to an extent that the Huaminca is slightly OP... but only if you compare it to the Incas' other units. I think their units are a bit too weak in general.

Pretty sure you just need to hit critical mass with Heavy Infantry. They don't have a bonus against them, so it should work out. Alternatively, use anti-infantry Artillery. Things die quickly.
