American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) Conference

The American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC) is the collective spirit and unifying voice of our nation’s 37 Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs)—a unique community of tribally and federally chartered institutions working to strengthen tribal nations and make a lasting difference in the lives of American Indians and Alaska Natives.

Students will engage in competitions designed to foster strong academic achievements in STEM, history, literature, and the arts. This event brings together future leaders of Indian Country and serves as a national gathering and training ground for native youth. 

Northwest Indian College was represented in 14 competitions. These were the Archery, Art Exhibit, Business Bowl, Chess, Critical Inquiry, Hand Games, One-Act-Play, Poetry Slam, Science Bowl, Scientific Oral Presentation, Scientific Poster Presentation, Persuasive Speech, Informative Speech, and Traditional Plants and Herbs competitions. Student participants were Tia Allen, Talon Arbuckle, Donna Azure, Yakaiyastai Gorman, Estabon Hayes, Autumn Heaton, Natalya Johnson, Avery Jones, Mikale Milne, Sam Obrovac, Kyle Pittman, Noel Purser, Colton Romannose, Marlene Umtuch and Jewell Jefferson.
