A Koshari Kachina, also called Clown, Glutton, and Hano Clown, is the representation of an important Pueblo deity who is both sacred and profane. The Koshari is expected to violate various norms of acceptable behavior and symbolizes the lack of impulse control of unsocialized youths. This is one of many versions of the Koshari Kachina.
