Gateway Communities are those communities next to public lands.  They frequently act as the entrance point to a public lands attraction.  They also serve as a tourism support network for the public land attraction providing access to food, lodging and additional shopping and attractions for visitors.  There are both benefits and challenges to being a gateway community. 

This survey is aimed at helping AIANTA understand and communicate the perspective of American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Gateway Communities to expand the conversation and partnership building opportunities with the National Park Service and other Public Lands agencies.
