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.

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. 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).". Near Fine .

Tapestries in Sand the Spirit of Indian Sandpainting

The book is in Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book covers have some light bumping, rubbing, and one small tear to the bottom front spine joint. The text pages are clean and bright. This copy has been signed by the author, with a short inscription by the author. "Born in Guadalajara to Indian and Spanish parents, he spent his early and troubled years in a Boys Town-type school in Sonora. When he was 16 he came to the United States, where he lived with the Navajos in Santa Fe, N. M. There he learned the mechanics and spiritual symbolism of sand painting. His work was seen by Ernest Thompson Seton, the naturalist and artist who helped found the Boy Scouts of America. Seton asked if Villasenor would help teach other boys to design in the sand. Seton placed the young Villasenor in his College of Indian Wisdom in Santa Fe, where the young artist taught in exchange for room and board. Drafted into the Army in World War II, Villasenor was used to make medical sculptures and moulages--direct impressions from living tissue. After the war the Natural History Museum of New York gave him a commission for 20 sand paintings, a ritual art traditionally done on the ground with most lasting but a single day. Villasenor learned to mount them permanently and 10 of the 20 were later purchased by the Southwest Museum near downtown Los Angeles. The rest were sold to the Neiman-Marcus store in Dallas. His later work was displayed throughout the West, while two of his 12-foot, 600-pound Aztec calendars are shown permanently at the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History and the Plaza de la Raza in Lincoln Park. One of his last works was a 10-foot-high figure of the Indian Chief Sequoyah, which he gave to the Cherokee Nation." (Los Angeles Times) ; Signed by Author. Very Good+ .
