Indigenous Peoples Week 2017

Planeta.com’s seventh annual celebration of social web storytelling about Indigenous peoples and tourism around the world — Indigenous Peoples Week takes place August 7-13.

Hashtag: #ipw7


Participation is free. Donations are welcome. Registration is open.

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.

The week focuses attention on August 9, the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.

Indigenous Peoples Week takes place everywhere at once, so consider this page the conference hub.

As a non-traditional unconference, participants are asked to actively use the social web a way to curate and share stories relevant to Indigenous travel and tourism. Highlights are featured on http://www.slideshare.net/planeta/indiweek2017

Other venues for conversations during the week are the Facebook event page.

How This Works

Everyone’s invited. Our circle of conversation includes Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples around the world.

Most of this event takes place online. We encourage and amplify the announcement of local, physical events around the world.

Become social web literate by registering and participating on a few social web channels or apps.

Levels of Engagement – Be creative and make something. Be generous and encourage someone else. Applaud the work of others who inspire and be generous. Strive toward empathy – consider someone else’s point of view. All of this may sound like a lot, but if you take the deep dive this week, you’re to be surprised by what you learn and what you contribute.

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