EMPOWERING OPPORTUNITY THROUGH TOURISM

The World Indigenous Tourism Alliance is an Indigenous-led global network of Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples and organizations who seek to give practical expression to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, through tourism. 

We are committed to working with Indigenous communities, tourism industry entities, states, and NGOs which have an interest in addressing the aspirations of Indigenous peoples seeking empowerment through tourism and producing mutually beneficial outcomes

INDIGENOUS HUMAN RIGHTS

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations on Thursday, September 13, 2007 – after more than two decades in the making. Since then, the global consensus around the Declaration has been reaffirmed at several occasions, and it became the foundation for the development of the Larrakia Declaration on the Development of Indigenous Tourism.
