Saturday, 2018 Indigenous Peoples Week


Saturday. Day Six. August 11, 2018. This is Planeta.com’s eighth year of hosting this online unconference celebrating Indigenous travel and tourism around the globe. Conversations are found online Twitter and Facebook and as comments and responses posted on this website.

Question of the Day
What are the timely Indigenous issues we should be paying attention? = ¿Cuáles son los temas indígenas oportunos a los que deberíamos prestar atención?

We recognize the topics that Indigenous peoples raise as items of importance, including sovereignty, constitutional recognition and the threats to agreed upon boundaries and protections. Case in point would be the Bears Ears National Monument which the Trump administration is reducing in size so as to permit mining and other mineral extraction.

Protecting Indigenous lands from exploitation from mining and other activities by requiring not only their consent but their participation in decision making.

How This Works
Each day this week Planeta.com will host an online social web challenge. Next week we’ll tabulate the points and announce winners by giving kudos to those who contribute.

This conversation is free and open to everyone – Indigenous peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, those who work in travel and tourism proper and those who work on the fringes or outside traditional definitions of ‘tourism provider’ or ‘guide.’
