AIANTA is hosting a free tourism marketing workshop in Idaho. As tribal nations and tourism enterprises and Native-owned businesses re-open to visitor traffic, a top need identified by these businesses is how to maximize their outreach to potential visitors. This workshop will show how tribes can grow their cultural tourism efforts through website development and by maximizing audio and video throughout their marketing efforts.

Additionally, AIANTA CEO Sherry L. Rupert and AIANTA Tribal Content Producer Bruce Rettig will showcase AIANTA’s collaborative efforts in partnership with the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail in developing cultural heritage content and itineraries for the Trail’s new geotourism website LewisandClark.travel and AIANTA’s consumer site NativeAmerica.travel.
