I hope this newsletter finds you all healthy, happy and (hopefully) planning some much-needed summer travels.
It’s been a year since I first started talking about “cautious optimism” with respect to the visitor industry starting to re-open to travelers. Now, a year later, travel still hasn’t returned to its pre-pandemic levels.

As you read this newsletter, I’m enjoying my first business travel in 15 months. For this trip, I’m traveling with Bruce Rettig, AIANTA’s Tribal Content Developer and Lorraine Gala Lewis, AIANTA’s Data & Outreach Specialist, and will also be joined, virtually, by Dan Wiley, the Senior Manager, Integrated Resources Stewardship of the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail. We’re meeting with tribes and Native-owned hospitality businesses located along the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail in Idaho and Montana.
