American cultural anthropologist. Benedict's fieldwork was done in California among the Serrano and with the Zuni, Cochiti, and Pima in the Southwest. Student training trips took her to the Mescalero Apache in Arizona and Blackfoot in the Northwest. From her work in the field, several of her books were developed: Tales of the Cochiti Indians (New York: 1931); Zuni Mythology (New York: 1935); and Patterns of Culture (Boston: 1934).
