"The name Tsuku is synonymous with clown. They, like the Paiyakyamu of Koshari, make an ash house with ashes from the fireplaces. They run races with the Wawarus Kachina and are the butt of much humor with the Piptuka. They are severely chastised by the Warrior Kachinas and the Owl Kachina for their misbehavior."
