“I am happy to share the third edition of Nations, showcasing the diversity of Indigenous businesses across Canada,” says Keith Henry, President and CEO of ITAC. “I hope readers are inspired to travel and take in the wilderness, traditional food, community and Traditional Knowledge that is featured in the stories from this year’s edition.”

This year’s edition of Nations includes individual features of Indigenous storytellers and artisans and explores exciting topics such as how to see the northern lights with an Indigenous eye; shared traditions and storied history; Indigenous wildlife tours and safaris; and sustainability in Indigenous tourism.
