TUBA CITY, Ariz. – Founded in 1975 by Northern Arizona University (NAU) professor and first Hopi geneticist, Dr. Frank Dukepoo, the National Native Honor Society (NNHS) inducts American Indian students who maintain a 4.0 grade point average (GPA) throughout their membership.

Dukepoo was a biology and science professor and the first Hopi geneticist at NAU who felt that American Indian students should have their own organization of academic excellence that would include only high achieving Native students in the NNHS by encouraging academic excellence as well as intellectual pursuits and high personal conduct standards.
