By Terry Lusty Local Journalism Initiative Reporter Indigenous tourism is an expanding and all-encompassing industry. That was the message from conference organizers, presenters and delegates attending the 10th annual International Indigenous Tourism Conference (IITC) held last month at downtown Winnipeg’s RBC Convention Centre. It was an event that attracted approximately 1100 delegates from throughout Canada’s 10 provinces, three territories and overseas locations like New Zealand, Australia, South America and elsewhere. To illustrate a possible business enterprise that could fly in the industry, consider the potential for some seniors who are adept at storytelling, poetry, singing, acting, etc. Knowledge keepers and Elders could also contribute in this capacity. After all many have first-hand knowledge and experiences that they can draw on. They could play host at retreats, camps and gatherings
