General Session IV: Indigenous Conversations – Celebrating our Past, Embracing our Future
This session takes a look at the changing composition of local livelihoods, and recognizes that the region’s indigenous people have a tangible role and stake in our tourism value chain.
Today, more than ever, indigenous communities across the Caribbean are accessing tourism markets and welcoming visitors to experience their culture and traditional ways of life. Through tourism, many are embracing expanded entrepreneurial opportunities, adding new dimensions to their sources of income, and creating niches that are increasingly sought after.
Join us as we celebrate the contribution of indigenous communities, listen and learn from their insights, and gain a deeper understanding of indigenous tourism within the Caribbean.
