Building Economic Strength In Indian Country
Tourism contributes to the well being of indigenous peoples and the preservation of valuable assets: lands, culture, heritage and language.
Native peoples, using ancient knowledge and traditions supported by modern skills can effectively create attractive businesses that are culturally, ecologically and economically sustainable.
We seek ways to work together on a local, regional, national and global basis to improve the well-being of our communities, our natural resources and our shared cultural heritage through tourism.
Vision of the Native Tourism Alliance
- Create and support an international network of indigenous individuals and groups to cooperatively develop and implement strategies for the advancement of indigenous tourism.
- Create and support strategies that adopt indigenous values, knowledge and wisdom to create cultural tourism programs.
- Work cooperatively within the tourism industry in ways that promote partnerships and heightened respect for indigenous beliefs and practices.
