In a world characterized by an encroaching homogeneity induced by the growth of multi-national corporations and globalization, the causes of difference accrue new levels of importance. This is as true of tourism as in many other spheres of life – and one cause of differentiation for tourism promotion is the culture of Indigenous Peoples. This offers opportunities for cultural renaissance, income generation and enhanced political empowerment, but equally there are possible costs of creating commodities out of aspects of life that previously possessed spiritual meaning. This book examines these issues from many different perspectives; from those of product design and enhancement; of the aspirations of various minority groupings; and the patterns of displacements that occur – displacements that are not simply spatial but also social and cultural. How can these changes be managed? Case studies and analysis is offered, derived from many parts of the globe including North America, Asia and Australasia. The contributors themselves have, in many instances, worked closely with groups and organizations of Indigenous Peoples and attempt to give voice to their concerns. The book is divided into various themes, each with a separate introduction and commentary. The themes are Visitor Experiences, Who manages Indigenous Cultural Tourism Product, Events and Artifacts, Conceptualisation and Aspiration. In a short final section the silences are noted – each silence representing a potential challenge for future research to build upon the notions and lessons reported in the book. The book is edited by Professor Chris Ryan from New Zealand, and Michelle Aicken of Horwath Asia Pacific.

This magnificent design treasury reproduces over 400 historic designs that embellish objects, manuscripts, monuments and buildings created in Britain from the 5th to the 14th centuries. Ranging from simple to sophisticated, the designs have been meticulously translated into highly decorative copyright-free line drawings by illustrator Eva Wilson. Artists and craftspeople will find this book a fertile source of design inspiration from a decorative-arts tradition of dazzling virtuosity, reflecting the rich intermingling of Roman, Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Germanic, Viking and other early aesthetic influences. Drawn chiefly from artifacts in the collections of various British museums and libraries, the selection includes: A gold buckle from the royal burial site at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk, Spiral scroll patterns from the Lindisfarne Gospels, Decorated letters from 7th-century manuscripts, Borders from the Book of Durrow, Designs from stone sculpture of the Viking Age, Embroidered designs from the Bayeux Tapestry, Chessmen from the Isle of Lewis, 13th- and 14th-century patterned floor tiles, ... and much more. This important, extensively researched sourcebook explores the historical background of the designs, and presents the patterns and motifs arranged thematically, demonstrating in detail how similar elements combine to produce a design as intricate as a decorated initial or as simple as a filled square or ornamental border. Here, then, is a comprehensive treasury of authentic, ready-to-use motifs that will lend medieval flair and flavor to almost any art or crafts project.
