Honanie was a founding member of Artist Hopid, a group of five Hopi artists who banded to work to educate the public to the values and identity of the Hopi people through various art media. Other members of Artist Hopid were Terrance Talaswaima, Milland Lomakema, Michael Kabotie and Neil David, Sr. The artists of this group are best known for paintings using vibrant colors inspired by murals from Hopi prehistoric sites.

In addition to paintings, Honanie also carves Katsina sculptures from cottonwood root.
