This is the Great Seal of the Navajo Nation, the largest Native American Tribe in North America. The seal was officially adopted by the Tribal Council on 18 January 1852 and was designed by John Claw, Jr. of Many Farms, AZ. The seal has a rainbow representing Navajo sovereignty with an opening on top representing the eastern direction with the sun rising. There are the four sacred mountains represented in the four sacred colors of white, blue, yellow and black. The green corn stalk represents the sustainment of Navajo life and the yellow on top represents the pollen used in scared Navajo ceremonies. Finally the animals represent the Navajo livestock industry.
The Tuba Trading Post has been in operation since 1870. It is still in operation and has a small grocery and lots of local art, crafts and souvenirs. There is a history walk leading to one of the entrances.
The Explore Navajo Musem, a hands-on museum, is located behind the historic Tuba Trading Post.
