Enriching Alaska Tourism Through First People’s Voices
While travelers to Alaska are lured by the state’s sense of adventure, few are familiar with Alaska’s sweeping narrative from a Native lens. The cruise industry, which delivers more than one million visitors a year, has only recently started offering “Meet the Locals” type programs, providing passengers a deeper, more fulfilling experience. Partnering with Native culture bearers is not an option limited to cruise lines, however. But the key to creating an authentic narrative is working directly with Native organizations and not speaking on their behalf. Learn from Camille Ferguson, Economic Development Director of the Sitka Tribe of Alaska, Mary Goddard, Regional Catalyst for Regenerative Tourism, Southeast Alaska, Keneggnarkayaaggaq Emily Edenshaw, EMBA, President & CEO, Alaska Native Heritage Center and Patuk Glenn, Executive Director, Arctic Slope Community Foundation, on how adding authentic Native Voices to tourism programming can enrich the Alaska visitor experience.
