Frank Buffalo Hyde was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, without an arm and a leg due to a birth defect from his father being exposed Agent Orange in Vietnam. During his early life he grew up on his mother's Onondaga reservation and Hyde returned to Santa Fe to attend the Santa Fe Fine Arts Institute and the Institute of American Indian Arts. Growing up, he idolized artists Fritz Scholder and T.C. Cannon for their humorous ways of poking fun at the myths of American Indians.

Hyde's father, Doug Hyde, is a sculptor designated as a tribal artisan by the Nez Perce Tribe and whose artwork featured at the Smithsonian Museum. As a child Frank Hyde would often try to assist his father with the making of his sculptures until he was scared off from a couple close incidents with a saw. Hyde soon declined an art scholarship to Pratt Institute to "chase stardom in a rock band". After six months, Hyde grew out of the hopes to become a musician and decided he wanted to go to school. He enrolled into the Institute of American Indian Arts where he was not able to register for any studio classes, so he decided to enroll for writing instead. Gradually, Hyde's interest in painting grew and eventually decided that he wanted to focus more on two-dimensional painting than writing
