Abstract: A powerful theorem and construction of Wayne Lewis are used to build two homeomorphisms on the pseudoarc, each of which is semiconjugate to the tent map on the unit interval. The first homeomorphism is transitive, thus answering a question of Marcy Barge as to whether such homeomorphisms exist. The second homeomorphism admits wandering points. Also, it is proven that any homeomorphism on the pseudoarc that is semiconjugate to the tent map and is irreducible with respect to the semiconjugacy must either be transitive or admit wandering points.
