Created by Aurélie Debusschère, humanist photographer & consultant in indigenous tourism, Native Immersion’s online magazine exclusively value ecotourism experiences offered by the Earth’s Guardians, keepers of Nature. A way to encourage meaningful actions contributing to the protection of human cultures, biodiversity and natural world balance.

 

Native Immersion is also a connecting space between indigenous communities and travelers.
As a commited media, Native Immersion weaves the link through travel recommendations to its members, creation of educational tools and editorial travel guides, as well as the organization of cultural events about indigenous travel in Europe, to support peace and a better communication and understanding between cultures.

 

Through an agreement with the World Indigenous Tourism Alliance, Native Immersion is committed to advocate the rights of indigenous people through smart and conscious travel. Native Immersion supports the design of new indigenous experiences around the world.

Native Immersion has signed a MOU with the World Indigenous Tourism Alliance (WINTA) to support the advocacy of the rights of indigenous peoples through alternative and conscious travel.

Native Immersion’s Travel House is an ultra-specialized house in indigenous immersions, co-creating exceptional cultural experiences with trustful travel agencies.  community tourism, fair or responsible tourism, indigenous tourism is first defined by indigenous people’s rules, principles and visions. It is giving priority, systematic and total compliance of local and international laws on indigenous peoples including United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP, 2007), Larrakia Declaration (2012) and Convention 169.

Native Immersion ensures the essential respect for these principles within each released cultural experience.

Scientists and experts in human rights have proven that 80% of worldwide biodiversity is located on indigenous ancestral lands and that respect of indigenous rights guarantees regeneration of the natural world on Earth. Given this statement, it has become essential to correctly inform travelers and travel professionals, tourism becoming the most important economical sector worldwide. As a source of support for peoples fighting to protect their territories and cultures, tourism is also a formidable predator. Knowing its mechanisms enables to invent virtuous schemes standing against the running ecocide. “Less but better”, conscious travel is a united support to Protectors of the Living, a peace messenger among peoples and a promise for a harmonious collective destiny.
