American Indian Alaska Native Tourism Association (AIANTA) – Planning Cultural Tourism Webinar
In 2008, Akwesasne leaders built their “Sharing the Spirit” initiative, which eventually paved the way for the formalized Akwesasne Cultural Tourism Strategic Action Plan. Today, implementation of the plan has led to a new tourism website, Akwesasne.travel, elevated tourism training for Akwesasne artisans, and increased awareness of Akwesasne culture and heritage. Join Penny Peters, Travel Industry Development Manager, Raeann Adams, Community Planner, and Gail McDonald, Akwesasne Heritage Complex Project Developer, and the Native American Traveling College in discussing how the strategic plan was conceptualized and how it continues to guide Akwesasne’s tourism planning.
