So, this place really is called "Tuba City" on all signage etc, not just "Tuba", hence the name. (WT-en) Jpatokal 17:08, 13 April 2007 (EDT)


Yes, I grew up there and can confirm that the place is called Tuba City. Though Tuba City is on the Navajo Nation it straddles the boarder between the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Reservation, So the English name came from Chief Tuba who was a prominent Hopi Leader and not the Brass Instrument. Interestingly Moenkopi is the name of the Hopi town that adjoins Tuba City which is directly south of highway 160. In Navajo it is called To'naneez'dizi which roughly means "Where the Twisting/Winding Rivers/Creeks meet" but as most people can't pronounce that right efforts to change the towns name has meet great opposition.

Great, thanks for reporting on that and welcome to Wikivoyage! I "signed" your post for you. On talk pages, it's customary to sign each post by typing 4 tildes (~) in a row at the end. This makes it easy to see who posted what in discussions. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:00, 21 December 2018 (UTC)
