May be taken as an elective in the BTourism degree course.
This unit explores concepts and issues relevant to, and the realities of, Indigenous Tourism. It delves into tourism in Australia's and New Zealand's colonial pasts, and also engages with contemporary ventures such as Indigenous dance, eco-tourism, pilgrimage to sacred sites, and Indigenous sites in the metropolis. Attention is given to issues such as marketing and representation, the roles of Indigenous tour guides, interpreting contested sites, the quest for authenticity, and sustainability. Comparative case studies from other regions such as the South Pacific and Central America are also considered.
