The American Indian Alaska Native Tourism Association Celebrates 25 Years as the Leader in Cultural Heritage Tourism and Announces Historic Name Change of National Conference at 25th Annual Event

Today, the American Indian Alaska Native Tourism Association (AIANTA), the only national organization dedicated to advancing cultural heritage tourism in Native Nations and communities across the United States, announced that its signature American Indian Tourism Conference (AITC) will become the American Indigenous Tourism Conference to reflect inclusivity of all U.S. Native Nations and communities beyond tribes, as Indigenous tourism continues to preserve generations of cultural heritage storytelling. The news was delivered in a keynote address by AIANTA CEO Sherry L. Rupert as the national nonprofit kicked off its 25th anniversary at the Choctaw Casino & Resort in Durant, Okla. on the tribal homelands of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.
