Hano is a populated place situated in the First Mesa CDP in Navajo County, Arizona. The village was settled by a tribe of the Tewa people early in the 1700s on First Mesa. It has been known by a plethora of names, including Ha-no-me, Hanoki, Janogualpa, Na-ca-ci-kin, Tanoquevi, Tanus, Te-e-wun-na, and Tewa. In 1915, the Board on Geographic Names officially named it Tegua, before changing their decision in 1989 to the current Hano. Hano is a Hopi term meaning "eastern people". It is located on the south end of First Mesa, about 0.7 miles (1.1 km) west of Polacca. It has an estimated elevation of 6,211 feet (1,893 m) above sea level.
