#MakeTravelMatter

At Insight Vacations, we are committed to supporting the cultures, traditions and arts of the communities that we visit. We help communities unlock the benefits of tourism through economic empowerment, by supporting micro-enterprises and community-based initiatives that build positive futures for local people and their families.

 

Meet Sarain Fox, People Ambassador

Activist | Dancer | Storyteller

Sarain amplifies the voices of her Indigenous community through preservation of culture and stories. “When we make authentic connections with local people our travel becomes infinitely richer. My First Nation Anishinaabe heritage serves as the lens through which I view the world, seeking to build a bridge to the people whose lands I am grateful to visit and whose stories I am privileged to tell. Throughout the Americas, you will find rich cultures to discover and support – and fascinating people to meet.”
