The Whipper Kachina "Tungwup" is a specialized form of a clown that disrupts the Zuni ceremony and harasses its leaders and participants until chased off by the Owl Kachina, the enforcers. They are meant to add theatricality to the ceremony and to remind us that to take ourselves too seriously is offensive to the Great Spirit as it gave us laughter as a form of medicine.

Sean Levon Nash

I believe sharing our culture increases its chance of survival.

I’m not here as a businessman, but an artist sharing his culture and gift with the world.
