    Native Tourism Alliance

    Our Plan

    Tribal Nations in South Dakota steward a rich array of natural and cultural resources—many of which offer untapped tourism opportunities.

    The South Dakota Native Tourism Alliance (SDNTA) is an ad hoc network of 60 representatives from the nine federally recognized tribal nations in South Dakota, industry leaders, and local, state, and federal partners, working together to develop Native American tourism as a catalyst for economic growth.

    For Tribal Nations, tourism offers the potential to alleviate poverty, the incentive to conserve their heritage and the opportunity to share their own stories on their own terms.

    For the growing number of travelers seeking to connect with cultures and communities, Indigenous tourism offers authentic travel experiences—and memories that can last a lifetime.
