Eventbrite - Indigenous Peoples Week 2016

The objective is two-fold: to raise awareness of Indigenous tourism options around the world and to improve digital literacy skills among the Indigenous tourism providers themselves.

The week focuses attention on August 9, the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.

Indigenous Peoples Week takes place everywhere at once.

As a non-traditional unconference, participants are asked to actively use the social web a way to curate and share stories relevant to Indigenous travel and tourism.

Other venues for conversations during the week are the Facebook event page

How This Works

Everyone’s invited. Our circle of conversation includes Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples around the world.

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

Become social web literate by registering and participating on a few social web channels or apps. Be creative and make something. Be generous and encourage someone else. Applaud the work of others who inspire and be generous. Strive toward empathy – consider someone else’s point of view. All of this may sound like a lot, but if you take the deep dive this week, you’re to be surprised by what you learn and what you contribute.
