The Nisg'a Nation is a vibrant, robust culture that thrives in a naturally beautiful land, and are eager to share their treasured lifestyle while simultaneously advancing their local economy. The Nisga'a are conscious of the tourism trade potential in the Nass Valley, and the most effective plan to ensure a commitment from the Nisga'a to the promotion of a flourishing tourism industry would include a systematically coordinated effort by the nation - beginning with the Nisga'a Lisims Government (NLG) - and the individual tourism and hospitality industry entrepreneur. Each party would ideally be dedicated to the conservation of the pristine environment in conjunction with a tourism plan. The institutions of Nisga'a government with its departments and institutions will be major players in the development of the tourism industry in the Nisga'a nation. Nisga'a Lisims Government (NLG) can assess the industry in the province, as well as the Northwestern section on the province, and determine the best fit for the Nisga'a tourism offerings into the established industry. From their daily operations, an as-yet-to-be association of Nisga'a tourism operators can determine the needs of the industry, and thus recommend appropriate legislation development and implementations that best suit the needs of potential visitors to the Nisga'a territories. Additionally, this not-yet-formed association would enable local operators to develop the resources that will provide the best experience for the visitors. The opening of the Nisga'a Museum on May 11, 2011 can be a starting point for the governments, its institutions and the individual tourism operators to create awareness for the Nisga'a Tourism Industry. --P. 1.
