Ernest Moore, who signs his work with his Hopi name Quanhoyeoma, spent most of his life living off the Hopi Reservation, returning to live in the village of Moenkopi in 1998. For many years Earnest worked as a graphic artist.

In 2003, he entered his work in the Heard Museum annual show and it won Best of Show, which then sold for $20,000 to the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

He won many awards including being designated an “Arizona Living Treasure,” in 2005.

There is no English name for this clown. His humorous behavior is that of an irresponsible but lovable clown who accompanies the reserved Chief Katsinas as well as the fierce guards and Warrior Katsinas.
