Session 2: Sacred vs. Secret vs. Widely Known
In this webinar we will discuss the importance of never crossing the fine line between exploitation of a people and respectful knowledge sharing. Our ultimate goal is to define the borders and align them with the opportunity to offer authentic cultural experiences. Stacia will share how she helped her community understand what she wanted to accomplish with Nez Perce Tourism and how she gained insight from elders on the parts of the Nez Perce culture that can be appropriately shared with guests.
