Ernest William Hawkes (1883-1954? ) was a fellow in anthropology at Columbia University, an explorer and a published author. The Dance Festivals of the Alaskan Eskimo (1914) was written by Hawkes from material gathered in the Bering Strait District during his three years residence there: two on the Diomede Islands, and one at St. Michael at the mouth of the Yukon River. Hawkes' other works include: The Inviting-in Feast of the Alaskan Eskimo (1913), Skeletal Measurements and Observations on the Point Barrow Eskimo, with Comparisons from Other Eskimo Groups (1916), and The Labrador Eskimo (1916); a report he published about his field trip among the Eskimo of Labrador, that he was hired to undertake by the Geological Survey of Canada in the summer of 1914.
