Zuni Fetishes were considered to be so powerful by the U.S. Government that in the late 1800's Frank Hamilton Cushing was sent out to the Zuni Reservation to live among the Zuni people and investigate and study the mysterious power of the Zuni Fetishes. Zuni fetishes were also so well respected by other tribes, that they were and still are in high demand for a variety of purposes.
