Tips for Indigenous Peoples Week

Just one day until the start of Indigenous Peoples Week!

There’s something for everyone to engage in responsible indigenous tourism. Whether you’re indigenous or non-indigenous, a tour guide or traveler, museum curator or museum visitor, here are some things you can do:

Bloggers, Journalists, Guidebook Authors and Publishers – Ask questions that you’d like answers. Afterwards, please keep us updated on how you are using the information. Let’s embed responsible indigenous travel in media features.

Conference organizers – If you are holding an event that features indigenous culture, consult with local indigenous communities and co-create relevant background information and practical tips for visitors.

Government officials – Prepare blogs, tweets, flickr albums and Slideshare presentations about your work in indigenous travel.

Museum directors – Print and display the conference posters, host local events and please announce your work via our Facebook and Google+ event pages

Sponsors – Contact Ron if you’d like to help financially support new publications, resource guides and workshops.

Students – Share news with your teachers and classmates. Print out the free posters for your classroom or academic notice board; make your own posters and please share online!
