Frank Hamilton Cushing, early American ethnographer of the Zuni people. Cushing studied the Zuni culture while making a five-year stay with the tribe, during which he was initiated into the Bow Priest Society. Many of his findings are summarized in Zuñi Folk Tales (1901), Zuñi Creation Myths. Many of his findings are summarized in Zuñi Folk Tales (1901), Zuñi Creation Myths (1896), and My Adventures in Zuñi (1941), as well as in his treatises on native technologies, such as Zuñi Breadstuff. He was an authority on the processes by which artifacts are made, having practiced the aboriginal arts until he mastered them. Cushing studied natural science at Cornell University.

In 1870 the Cushings moved to western New York, where their thirteen-year-old son quickly began to pursue the interests which would mark his adult life
