The COVID-19 pandemic all but halted the global tourism industry disrupting the lives and livelihoods of many who work in or are connected to tourism. It has also disproportionately affected Native communities. As a response to this crisis, Airbnb and other companies have developed a way for tourism business to offer some of their products online. Through use of technology and compelling storytelling, entrepreneurs have been able to sell and deliver tourism experiences entirely online from the safety of their homes.
