Matilda Coxe Stevenson (née Evans) (1849-1915) was an American ethnologist, born at San Augustine, Tex.

In 1872 she was married to James Stevenson, an ethnologist (died 1888), with whom she spent 13 years in explorations of the Rocky Mountain region.

After 1889 she was on the staff of the Bureau of American Ethnology of the Smithsonian Institution. Mrs. Stevenson explored the cave, cliff, and mesa ruins of New Mexico, studied all the Pueblo tribes of that State, and in 1904-10 made a special study of the Taos and Tewa Native Americans.

She was the author of:
  • Zuņi and the Zuņians (1881)
  • Religious life of the Zuņi Child (1887)
  • The Sia, Zuņi Scalp Ceremonials (1890)
  • Zuņi Ancestral Gods and Masks (1898)
  • The Zuņi Indians: Their Mythology, Esoteric Fraternities, and Ceremonies (1904)
