We build strategic partnerships, both public and private, to extend the reach of tribes and ensure authentic tribal experiences.
AIANTA’s best work is done by connecting with tribal, federal, state and industry leaders. Through strong relationships with our partners and stakeholders, we are able to move our mission forward. Since our founding, we have worked to grow our existing relationships while attracting new partners to support our work.
Through our strategic partnerships, AIANTA works to educate state, federal and industry leaders so they support and facilitate a thriving Indian Country tourism industry. In our work with strategic partners, we help to cut through the noise of global tourism promotion to elevate tribal destinations among travelers, tour operators, travel agents, the media and nationally.
