Indigenous Tourism

The Government of the Northwest Territories recognizes the growing demand for tourism products based in authentic Indigenous culture – and that such an industry will have significant economic, community development and cultural value.

Preliminary consultation in NWT regional centres in 2009/2010, demonstrated considerable interest in developing the NWT’s Indigenous tourism industry.

Many respondents expressed their view that the true value of developing this sector of the NWT’s tourism industry will be realized in revitalizing and invigorating a sense of pride in Indigenous culture and traditions.
