    . This special case examines the evolution of a cooperative and symbiotic strategy involving 7 stakeholder groups, as they independently work through the application of a range of tourism planning principles and create a pastiche of compatible strategies which have the effect of offering protection to the minority cultural group. Some of the important lessons for the tourism industry and the transferability of this experience are discussed.
