South Dakota Native Tourism Alliance
The South Dakota Native Tourism Alliance (SDNTA) is an ad hoc network of representatives from the nine federally recognized Tribal Nations in South Dakota, and local, state, and federal partners, working together to assess the potential for Indigenous Tourism. The SDNTA members are working together to develop tourism as a catalyst for economic growth. SDNTA developed a five-year strategic plan to sustainably and ethically develop Indigenous Tourism in South Dakota. A summary of the strategic plan is available here:
The George Washington University International Institute of Tourism Studies, as part of a technical assistance project funded by the Bureau of Indian Affairs Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development, is supporting the establishment of the SDNTA.
