AIANTA’s mission is to define, introduce, grow and sustain American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Tourism that honors traditions and values.
To help tribes build their futures while sustaining and strengthening their cultural legacies, AIANTA provides technical assistance, builds partnerships and programs, and advocates for Indian Country tourism at state and national levels.
Through AIANTA membership, tribes, members of the tourism industry, federal, state and local governments, colleges and universities and others form a resource network and are able to share experiences and support one another. AIANTA members are well-informed and play a key role in supporting sustainable and authentic tribal tourism that benefits not only member tribes, but all tribes. With your help, we’ll continue to make sure that the right national decision makers hear your voice—and all our voices—so our people can thrive and grow.
All memberships are due July 1 and end June 30 of each year.
Members who join after July 1 will have their second year pro-rated.
