Tribal Opportunities
Overcoming challenges to successfully launch agritourism experiences
By Dan Moore, AIANTA’s Tribal Agritourism Consultant
In the past couple months in our agritourism series, we’ve been focusing on the benefits agritourism can bring to tribal communities – from  connecting visitors to the cultural significance of tribal agricultural land and operations, to the potential revenue source that agritourism can present.
Because traditional Native American cultivation and harvesting has not been limited to farms and ranches in the modern sense, tribal agritourism can incorporate a much broader scope. Many communities and entrepreneurs around the country have harnessed travelers’ increasing interest in food and farming as an opportunity to invest in traditional cuisine and practices. Beyond leading to increased community pride, many of these opportunities also provide an effective avenue for perpetuating Native cultures and traditions through education and first-hand experiences.
