Indigenous tourism background

Indigenous tourism background

Last week we have learned about the meaningful and valuable landscape and a systematic method to assess landscape. In this week, Mr. Fergus T. Maclaren, who is the president of ICOMOS International Scientific Committee on Cultural Tourism, will talk about sustainable indigenous tourism by illustrating issues at Canadian World Heritage Sites.

You will learn the following five sections: indigenous tourism background, World Heritage and indigenous peoples, tourism issues at Canadian indigenous World Heritage Sites, Case study of Pimachiowin Aki and conclusions.

In the first video of this week, you will learn the definition of indigenous tourism, the background of indigenous tourism and different sorts of aboriginal cultural activities.

In this video, the educator analyses a lot of films about aboriginal culture and aboriginal people.

If you have seen relevant films, please share your experience in the discussion area.
