Giclee on Canvas - 18" x 24"" by Joe Cajero 6/60

Koshares are sacred clowns of the Pueblos. They are a highly valued clan among the people of the Pueblos. Their medicine and blessings are of Joy, Happiness, and Laughter. One is not born into the clan, instead, becoming a member "comes to one", like a calling. 


This profile portait of a Northern Pueblo Koshare captures a moment of reminiscing the sacred fulfillment from the ceremonial day.


A beautiful butterfly lands on his cornhusk, a symbol of nature's gentle blessings. It is said that butterflies are a part of the Koshare's initiation process and that they are their Spiritual Companions.
