"The Arizona Tewa (also Hopi-Tewa, Tano, Southern Tewa, Hano, Thano) are a Tewa Pueblo group that resides on the eastern part of the Hopi Reservation on or near First Mesa in northeastern Arizona. The name Tano is a Spanish borrowing of an older Arizona Tewa autonym t? nu twa. Tano is often encountered in the anthropological literature referring to the ancestors of the Arizona Tewa before they relocated to Hopi territory. The name Hano, similarly, is a borrowing of t? nu into Hopi as hno, hnw? , which was then Anglicized."

Messages On Stone Selections of Native Western Rock Art, Stokes, William Michael and William Lee Stokes
2 Stokes, William Michael and William Lee Stokes Messages On Stone Selections of Native Western Rock Art
Salt Lake City, UT Starstone Publishing Co. 1989 7th Printing Paperback Near Fine 
B&W Illustrations; This is an oblong paperback book with cardstock covers and a stapled spine. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. "Petroglyphs are images created by removing part of a rock surface by incising, picking, carving, or abrading, as a form of rock art. Outside North America, scholars often use terms such as "carving", "engraving", or other descriptions of the technique to refer to such images. Petroglyphs are found worldwide, and are often associated with prehistoric peoples. The word comes from the Greek word petro-, theme of the word "petra" meaning "stone", and glyphein meaning "to carve", and was originally coined in French as ptroglyphe. The term petroglyph should not be confused with petrograph, which is an image drawn or painted on a rock face. Both types of image belong to the wider and more general category of rock art or parietal art. Petroforms, or patterns and shapes made by many large rocks and boulders over the ground, are also quite different. Inukshuks are also unique, and found only in the Arctic (except for reproductions and imitations built in more southerly latitudes)."
