The Native American Student Center, in conjunction with the Native American Student Association and the University of Idaho, hosts the Tutxinmepu Powwow each year. Tutxinmepu is a Nez Perce word meaning “the place where the deer loses its spots.” Dancers, drummers and audiences come from across the Northwest and Canada to participate in this visual and artistic representation of the strength and vitality of the Native culture.
