Talking Cultural Tourism In Hawaii
Bridging cultures, facing challenges, implementing best practices, sharing opportunities
In the past few months, AIANTA has had several opportunities to share our expertise on cultural heritage tourism with other industry leaders in the Aloha State. In September, AIANTA Board President Sherry L. Rupert and AIANTA Pacific Board Representative Pohai Ryan each presented on cultural tourism during the Global Tourism Summit in Honolulu; and this month AIANTA Executive Director Camille Ferguson discussed best practices and presented opportunities within AIANTA’s programs at the 11th Annual Business Fest in Maui.
During these presentations, #AIANTA’s leadership was able to address best practices, unique challenges that Indian Country and Native businesses face in the tourism industry and the programs that AIANTA offers in our efforts to advance and support Native tourism throughout the United States.
