Ayayat Idait Tena Numu

Ayayat Idait Tena Numu means “Beautiful the Ways of Our People” in the three languages of the Tribes of Warm Springs: the Wasco, Warm Springs, and Paiute Tribes. For 15 years, Ayayat Idait Tena Numu dancers have been learning the Wasq’u (Wasco) dances from tribal Elders to revive the traditional dances and songs of old. Combining the dance styles of three unique cultures – including Warm Springs dances and Paiute round dances –  these social gatherings bring people together to revive culture for coming generations, invest in youth, and have a good time.
