Event description

Description

We are pleased to invite the world to the 2017 Indigenous Peoples Week August 7-13.

This will be our seventh annual celebration of social web storytelling about Indigenous peoples and tourism around the world. The objective is two-fold: to raise awareness of Indigenous tourism options around the world and to improve digital literacy skills among the Indigenous tourism providers themselves.

Participation is free. Donations are welcome. PWYW - Pay what you want. Tickets are available until the end of August.

Why register? We're creating a directory of participants and soliciting feedback. Your responses shape the conversations to come.

As an online networking event, IPW is a hands-on training. Learn the social web by using Blogs, Facebook, Flickr, Periscope, Pinterest, Slideshare, Twitter, YouTube, Wikipedia to learn and share info about indigenous culture.
