Webinar: Planning for Cultural Tourism
September 21; 10 am - 11:30 pm MDT
In 2008, Akwesasne leaders built their “Sharing the Spirit” imitative, which eventually paved the way for the formalized Akwesasne Cultural Tourism Strategic Action Plan. Today, implementation of the plan has led to a new tourism website, Akwesasne.travel, elevated tourism training for Akwesasne artisans, and increased awareness of Akwesasne culture and heritage. Join Penny Peters, Tourism Industry Development Manager, Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, in discussing how the strategic plan was conceptualized and how it continues to guide Akwesasne’s tourism planning.
