* The Clown (Koshare) Summer Clown, is known by many other names, includingKaisale(Winter Clown),Tsuku(Second and Third Mesa), Koyaala,andHano(First Mesa). The Clown has a complex ceremonial role, giving wisdom and advice as well as poking fun at unacceptable behavior. The Clown is said to be a glutton, always overdoing it whether he is making fun of the dancers, trying to get the children to behave during ceremonies, or commenting on Hopi behavior. They are generally amusing and do things that noHopi or anyone else would want to be caught doing. They are often depicted with a watermelon, but often times with other objects too. *
