Dan Shilling/Keynote Address 2008 NAI National Workshop 60 minutes "Can you imagine tourism as an enabler of healthy place-making, a tool for meaning-making, and a means to provide the sense of purpose and connection more people seek?" -Dan Shilling Civic tourism is an extension of heritage tourism and other place-based models, which are noble pursuits but often donÆt work because communities still define tourism in economic terms. Civic tourism "reframes" tourism, from an end to a means--from a market-driven growth goal to a tool that helps the public preserve what they love about their place, while revitalizing the economy. To do so, this presentation recommends three strategies: 1) "Rethink Economics" urges communities to connect tourism to restorative market policies; 2) "Connect to the Public" recommends engagements practices that foster support for responsible tourism; and 3) "Invest in the Story" encourages a robust conceptual and financial commitment to place-making.

Picture of the productDVD - James Loewen Keynote Address
James Loewen/Keynote Address 2007 NAI National Workshop 60 minutes James Loewen spent two years at the Smithsonian surveying 12 leading high school textbooks of American history, only to find an embarrassing blend of bland optimism, blind nationalism, and plain misinformation, weighing in at an average of 888 pages and almost five pounds. He is a best-selling author who has written Lies Across America: What Our Historic Sites Get Wrong. He also wrote Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your High School History Textbook Got Wrong, a book that has sold more than 800,000 copies and continues to inspire K-16 teachers to get students to challenge rather than memorize their textbooks. The Gustavus Myers Foundation named his most recent book, Sundown Towns, a Distinguished Book of 2005. He discovered through his research that many communities were (and some still are) 'Sundown Towns' that kept out blacks and other groups for decades.

Richard Louv/Keynote Address 2006 NAI National Workshop 60 minutes Richard Louv directly links the absence of nature in the lives of today's wired generation to some of the most disturbing childhood trends: the rise in obesity, attention disorders, and depression. In his keynote address at the 2006 NAI National Workshop, he brings together a body of research indicating that direct exposure to nature is essential for healthy childhood development and for the physical and emotional health of children and adults. More than just raising an alarm, Louv offers practical solutions to heal the broken bond.

Roberta Conner/Keynote Address 2008 NAI National Workshop 60 minutes "Culture brings us together. Culture reflects our values. ItÆs what we hold closest to our hearts and cling to in times of need." -Roberta Conner The homelands of the Cayuse, Umatilla, and Walla Walla have long been an intersection for trade, adventure, and migration. Three historic trails traverse the TribesÆ aboriginal lands--Oregon Trail, Lewis & Clark Trail, and Whitman Mission route--while a fourth, the nearby Nez Perce National Trail, signals the shared histories of the Cayuse and Nez Perce. This crossroads provides a great location for a new migration of visitors who can explore ancient stories, examine contemporary controversies, experience eco-epiphanies, comprehend watershed moments in tribal history, and get on the same wavelength without walking a mile in our moccasins.
