Background

This is our fifth annual celebration of social web storytelling that explores the connections among Indigenous peoples and tourism around the world. Five years! We encourage you to use our #IPW5 hashtag on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.

One of Planeta.com's tentpole events, Indigenous Peoples Week manifests our commitment toward effective communication and collaboration. Responsible travel is not an ethical dilemma of whether to have fun or be responsible. We can do both!

International Day of the World's Indigenous People: August 9 @UN @UN4Indigenous #IndigenousDay (attribution-sharealike license)

Indigenous Peoples Week leads up to August 9 -- the United Nations’ International Day of the World's Indigenous People / Día Internacional de los Pueblos Indígenas / Journée internationale des peuples autochtonesa. Hashtag:
#IndigenousDay. Let's be clear - many of our dear friends and family have never heard of the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples. One of our objectives is to expand the energy of one day to one week. That's how any respectable party takes place in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Conversations have already begun and there's always time to begin a new. Please let us know how you would like to be involved. Participating in Indigenous Peoples Week Week can be as simple or involved as you like.

Special kudos to wiki editors for updates and embedding indigenous culture elsewhere on this site. (If you'd like to volunteer, contact Ron Mader directly).

Levels of Engagement

We have come up with five simple levels of engagement that apply to successful participation. If you want to be engaged, be attentive, be creative, be generous, be curious and be empathetic.

Be attentive: Go outside, visit a museum, learn about indigenous culture. Do stuff!

Be creative: Use the social web to share stories and ask questions. Make something! Examples: Make a Flickr gallery (example) or Pinterest album. Upload a video to YouTube or presentation to Slideshare.

Be generous: Add stars to other people’s photos or make a gallery of your faves, like comments on Facebook, give a thumbs up to videos on YouTube and have a heart by favoriting the Indigenous Peoples Week presentation on Slideshare. Plus +1 the post on Google+. When in doubt how to be generous, just be kind!

Be curious: Be open to examples of indigenous tourism where you were not necessarily looking. Let your curiosity surprise you. This might be in your own country or in the place where you are planning a vacation.

Be empathetic: Extend your compassion to what and who you see.

Google hangouts. We will be scheduling at least one hour per day during Indigenous Peoples Week. We love the hangout format as it encourages ambient, candid conversations rather than discourses or people reading out presentations word-by-word. If you would like to appear on camera, please contact Ron Mader.

Controversies. One of the attributes of an unconference is that the participants set the agenda by what they do and what questions they raise. While we are not seeking out controversies, we welcome the opportunity to explore critical issues. Already we've seen a discussion blossom on Facebook as to whether indigenous peoples should always be capitalized 'Indigenous Peoples.' There's also discussion about mining and other extractive industries.

YouTube Playlist Contest

One of our favorite forms of curation is via the selection of favorite videos on YouTube. We challenge you to create inspiring playlists focusing on indigenous culture and travel. Look for our favorite video playlists below.

Poster Contest

Put your hands and heart to work. We'd love to see your handmade posters for Indigenous Peoples Week. Be creative and show us the results. Bonus bonus points for artwork in indigenous languages.

What to do with your poster? You can add your artwork on Facebook and Flickr. Tip: If you post to Flickr, it's easy for us to embed the widget code on this page ... and we can easily see which poster is the most popular in number of views. On Flickr please use the license 'Attribution-ShareAlike' which allows anyone to use and remix the poster. More about licensing via creative commons.

If you cannot create your own poster, then help us out by liking, favoriting, sharing the posters. You can even print the posters and display them at local libraries, museums and stores. If you cannot create, curate!

Be Engaged: How to get outside, meet people and eat delicious foods

Try these suggestions all year round, but Indigenous Peoples Week is a great time to start! Find out if there are any special activities in your city for August 9, the International Day of the World's Indigenous People
  • Visit a museum: Seek out museums that work with indigenous peoples. Bonus points if you share photos on Flickr in the World Museums Group.
  • Buy a craft: Support indigenous artisans by purchasing an authentic indigenous craft. Bonus points if you share photos on Flickr in the World Crafts Group.
  • Take a tour: There are many indigenous guides and tour companies. Make a reservation.
  • Create supportive work spaces: Your workplace or school can support Indigenous Peoples Week. Support staff, students and colleagues.
  • Schedule some indigenous language time: Allocate time for an indigenous language lessons.
  • Make a sign: Create bilingual signs. Not so creative? Download, print and display our posters and encourage others to join Indigenous Peoples Week.

Be Engaged: How to make the most of online participation

Learn social web skills by using the social web: Blogs, Facebook, Flickr, Google+, Linkedin, Periscope, Pinterest, Slideshare, Twitter, YouTube, Wikipedia to learn and share info about indigenous culture. Here's our checklist of communication challenges:
  • Blog: If you have your own blog, share stories about indigenous culture; if you don't have your own blog, add constructive comments to a blog of your choice!
  • Facebook: Introduce yourself on the event page; You can also recommend relevant groups and pages on Facebook. If you know of specific indigenous tourism operations with presence on Facebook, invite them to join us
  • Flickr: Create an account an upload a few photos of your work. Create an album like Sami Food! There are a number of relevant groups. One of our favorites is the World Crafts Group open to indigenous and non-indigenous artisans. Another fave is the World Parks Group. The point is to share tips on indigenous tourism, embedding the info within the photo description. A plus for indigenous tourism businesses is the ease of creating a widget to share Flickr photos on websites and blogs.
  • Google+: Join the Indigenous Tourism Community
  • Linkedin: Introduce yourself and your interest in indigenous culture on the event page
  • Periscope: Stream live video
  • Pinterest: Create or co-create an album about indigenous travel

  • Storify: Curate tweets or pictures about #ipw5
  • Twitter: Tweet about indigenous culture and please tweet about this page! Ask others to invite indigenous guides and artisans.
  • YouTube: Record your own video and introduce yourself and your interest in indigenous tourism. If you are a tour company, show us something during the week. You can also curate a playlist to document indigenous culture and traditional knowledge. Example: 2012 Indigenous Peoples Week
  • Wikipedia: Read or edit information about indigenous culture. Bonus points if you explain how the new Wikimedia Foundation travel guide project works.
  • Planeta Wiki: Editors are encouraged to update pages and embed information on indigenous culture. Examples: Maori, Sami

Be Engaged: A guide for everyone

FYI


This online unconference is free. 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.

Everyone's invited. Our circle of conversation includes indigenous and non-indigenous peoples around the world. Many of our partners are the winners of the Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Website Award.

Talking points include biodiversity conservation, crafts, cultural heritage, food and literacy (traditional reading and writing and digital literacy -- the emerging read write culture).

Use social web to curate and share stories of starting up, collaborating and developing new initiatives. Curate has been a one of the key buzzwords as in 'If you can't create, curate.'

Become online conference fit by registering for social web channels. Create your own materials. Also, be generous. Applaud the work of others who inspire. Have fun.

Show us a future we can share.

Financial sponsors are welcome to further the dialogue through innovative workshops and road trips. We are thinking of developing a concurrent kickstarter campaign. Please contact Ron Mader if you'd like to collaborate.

Ron Mader: "One thing I've learned from living in Oaxaca, Mexico is that anything worth celebrating for one day is worth celebrating a week or more! Indigenous Peoples Week honors August 9, the International Day of the World's Indigenous People. For non-indigenous people like myself, this week is a ticket to understanding the world's diverse cultures. It's time to take stock of the number of indigenous voices that reach our eardrums. The social web is used by indigenous peoples and visitors alike so we invite friends to share stories that inspire and educate us all."

Anders Kärrstedt: "Indigenous Peoples Week tests our abilities to see what's possible in terms of sharing information online in a timely manner. Hopefully we will share a lot of information about indigenous peoples worldwide."

Comments collected during registration

Is there anything you'd like to see addressed during IPW? Government commitment to the development of a regulated tourism system to ensure only genuine Aboriginal Tour product is promoted and endorsed across Australia. At present there are too many non-Aboriginal CTOs peddling fraudulent product under the guise that it is genuine. This tokenizes the Aboriginal tourism experience and detracts buyers from seeking out genuine Aboriginal products.

2015 Theme: "Post 2015 Agenda: Ensuring indigenous peoples' health and well-being"
Every year, August 9 is commemorated as the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples. The day is celebrated with special events around the world, including at United Nations Headquarters in New York. This year's theme puts a spotlight on the issue of indigenous peoples' access to health care services, as improving indigenous peoples’ health remains a critical challenge for indigenous peoples, Member States and the United Nations. The “State of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, Volume II”, which will be launched at the UN Headquarters event in observance of the International Day, provides important background information on the topic. The observance of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples at UN Headquarters will take place on Monday, August 10 in the ECOSOC Chamber, from 3pm-6pm. The event will be webcast live on webtv.un.org.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why is Indigenous Peoples Week celebrated in August?
The United Nations’ International Day of the World's Indigenous People is observed on August 9 to promote the rights of the world’s indigenous population. We wrap our week around this day.

Who can participate in Indigenous Peoples Week?
Everyone's invited. We welcome anyone interested in indigenous culture and responsible travel.

Why an unconference? What's an unconference?
We have chosen the format of an unconference -- a facilitated, participant-driven conference centered on a specific theme -- in order to catalyze a global conversation so that lessons can be shared around the world. This also allows us to co-create an event with a minimum budget. The organizers are volunteering their time and no charge is made of participants.

Who are indigenous peoples?
Anders Kärrstedt: Ethnic groups who are native to a land or region, especially before the arrival and intrusion of a foreign and possibly dominating culture. They are a group of people whose members share a cultural identity that has been shaped by their geographical region. A variety of names are used in various countries to identify such groups of people, but they generally are regarded as the "original inhabitants" of a territory or region.

What is indigenous tourism?
Indigenous tourism can be a guided trek, a meal, a night spent in an indigenous home or a visit to a museum or a performance. It can be 100% manufactured or 100% authentic. What makes indigenous tourism responsible travel is when the locals and visitors are treated with mutual respect.

How has the awareness of indigenous tourism changed in the past ten years?
Awareness of indigenous tourism has matured in the past decade. Irresponsible actions -- exploitation -- are frequently headline news and the focal points of campaigns. However the promotion of indigenous tourism options has not enjoyed similar popularity, leaving visitors and locals alike with the notion that there is much to be wary and little to cheer for. That said, the intention of Indigenous Peoples Week is catalyze a productive conversation (and hopefully some real-time reservations) that support indigenous tourism. This is a call to action and we hope that Indigenous Peoples Week provides the needed wake-up call.

How can we evaluate the success of Indigenous Peoples Week?
We'd like this celebration to gently nudge everyone forward. We'll keep track of the number of participants who join and engage us via the social web and in specific terms: are there new blogs, photo albums, videos. Ron will pay special attention to what other editors add to this page and how well Indigenous ideas are embedded on the relevant regional and topical pages. In particular we want to showcase resources and tours developed in-house by Indigenous artisans, educators, farmers, teachers? How well do non-Indigenous peoples promote Indigenous allies? We'll highlight what participants bring forward. We'll count the number of views, downloads and favorites on the Slideshare presentation and encourage participants to comment and to upload their own presentations and documents. We'll work with guides and companies featured in Planeta.com's World Travel Directory and help articulate their connections to the indigenous world. We will also add links to media features and blogs, youtube videos and slideshare presentations that mention Indigenous Peoples Week. It's all about building a buzz that benefits us all. Can we improve upon last year's Indigenous Peoples Week? That's our goal and we're on a roll.

What did we learn in 2015?



Navajo Nation Fair is scheduled for September 6-13, 2015
https://www.facebook.com/NavajoNationFair


What are the benefits of participating in Indigenous Peoples Week?
Compassion. Education. A renewed sense of wonder. That said, what you get out of this unconference depends on what you invest and how you collaborate.

How do I get the most out of Indigenous Peoples Week?
Be specific with your goals. And prepare to follow through throughout the month of August. You will have to structure a routine that works for you. If you are not able to check out the posts on our Facebook and Google+ event pages, if you do not have time to watch the videos, then chances are you're not going to get that much out of our unconference.

Who are the conference partners?
Planeta.com, Nutti Sámi Siida, Nevada Magazine, TIME Unlimited, The Travel Word, aka @ronmader @nuttisamisiida @Nevada_Magazine @timeunlimited @localtravels

What do you expect from IPW partners?
Some promotion, announcements before the week begins and perhaps a hangout or few before and during IPW5. Partners are invited but not obliged to edit the Planeta Wiki. Partners are encouraged but not obliged to hold a local physical event during the week. We appreciate any social web tips/examples that help explain social web channels used to catalyze communication, ala 'Here's how to make use of YouTube' or 'Here are indigenous tourism champions of the Northern Territory.'
