Planeta.com, Nutti Sámi Siida, Guurrbi Tours, TIME Unlimited and Nevada Magazine co-host Indigenous Peoples Week August 6-12, 2012, our second entray into storytelling illuminating Indigenous Peoples and tourism around the virtual campire, aka the social web.

Our circle of conversation includes indigenous and non-indigenous peoples around the world. Everyone's invited and participation is free.

This online unconference is a mix of real-time conversations and asyrchonous communication. Much of this online and we encourage the creation and participation in events in the natural world.

Talking points include biodiversity conservation, crafts, cultural heritage, food and literacy (traditional reading and writing and digital literacy -- the emerging read write culture).

Everyone is encouraged to document and curate indigenous tourism using Social Web to share stories of starting up, collaborating and developing new initiatives.

Friends remind us that if the status quo is not good enough, we must propose alternatives. Show us a future we can literally share.

PARTNERS AND SPONSORS

We welcome additional partners and sponsors willing to lead by example. Financial support is most welcome and can be used to recruit more visitors for indigenous tourism services and upgrade digital literacy skills among those offering indigenous tourism options.




BE ENGAGED!

How to participate in the natural world. Try these suggestions all year round, but Indigenous Peoples Week is a great time to start!

  • Visit a museum: Seek out museums that work with indigenous peoples. Bonus points if you share photos on Flickr in the World Museums Gallery.

  • Buy a craft: Support indigenous artisans by purchasing an authentic indigenous craft. Bonus points if you share photos on Flickr in the World Crafts Group.

  • Take a tour: There are many indigenous guides and tour companies. Make a reservation.

  • Create supportive work spaces: Your workplace or school can support Indigenous Peoples Week. Support staff, students and colleagues with resources.

  • Schedule some indigenous language time: Allocate time for an indigenous language class.

  • Make a sign: Put bilingual signs up where you are - signs are a visible way of showing that indigenous languages are valued. Bonus points for pop-up museums!
