We want to help build a network for the Indigenous tourism industry from the ground-up, in consultation with all relevant stakeholders.
ITANB's membership program consists of two main categories of membership, each with different tiers. These are Tourism Operator Memberships, and Community Memberships. Tourism Operator Members are Indigenous tourism businesses, at various levels of operational capability. Community members are individuals from Indigenous communities, as well as supporters and donors from within and outside of these communities.
