Hobomok, a tale of Early Times is a novel by the nineteenth century American author and human rights campaigner Lydia Maria Child. Her first novel, published in 1824 under the pseudonym "An American", it relates the marriage of a white American woman to the eponymous Native American, her widowing and her attempt to raise their son in white society.

The subject of miscegenation being taboo, the book fared poorly. Child was later active as an abolitionist, feminist and supporter of Native Americans.
