The community name of Teec Nos Pos (pronounced Tease-Nhas-phas) is an English variation on the Navajo words Tiis nazbas, which has a Navajo meaning of "circle of cottonwood trees".

The trading post is located, on the Navajo Nation, in an area known as the Four Corners, which is named for the point were the four States of Arizona, Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico meet.

The Navajo Nation is the largest (population greater than 169,000) Native American reservation in the United States. The population is ten times greater than the 2nd largest reservation. It encompasses significant portions of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
