The 1906 photograph by Joseph Mora on the Hopi reservation was the inspiration for the amusing Koshare Tug-A-War. After the ceremonial dancers have retired for food and a rest, the crowd is entertained and taunted by the Koshare clowns. They often use village politics, gossip or other incidents of importance to the tribe as the source for their comic actions.

Doug Hyde
Born in Hemiston, Oregon in 1946, Hyde's tribal affiliations include Assinboine, Chippewa and Nez Perce. When he was three, the family moved to Idaho and lived on the Nez Perce reservation, where Hyde spent time with his grandfather and other elders. From 1964-1966 Hyde attended the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico during which time he met young artists from a variety of Native American backgrounds and studied with Apache sculptor Allan Houser.

In 1967 he attended the San Francisco Art Institute on a scholarship but then enlisted in the US Army, doing tours of duty in the 198th Light Infantry Brigade in Vietnam. Seriously wounded by a grenade, he was hospitalized for several months and later learned to cut and shape stone at a friend's memorial business. In 1972 he returned to teach art at the Institute of American Indian Art. He has completed a number of major commissions.
