Cruise Ship Indigenous Presenters

Cruise ships are requesting Indigenous presenters from the lands where they dock. The multimedia presentations would be about the Indigenous people of the area where the ship is due to arrive. The objective is to teach the cruise guests about the Indigenous cultures of the area in the past and the present.
If you have significant experience presenting about your culture and would like to present a program onboard a cruise ship in exchange for a free cruise, meals, and transportation, please fill out the form below. We have cruises and destinations that want you!
