Question 1

1. Among the Toraja people of Sulawesi, Indonesia, not all was going well with

tourism. In fact, resentment became so great over the way in which sacred

funeral ceremonies were being adapted to meet tourists’ needs that in the late

1980s, a number of Toraja communities simply refused to accept tourists. The

result is that host communities find culture and traditions under threat from the

purchasing power of the tourism industry. Neither are tourists better off from

the cultural viewpoint. Instead of getting rich and authentic cultural insights

and experiences, tourists get staged authenticity; instead of getting exotic

culture, they get kitsch. Question: Within the context of the narrative

presented above, discuss 4 cultural differences (Scollon and Scollon, 1995)

that may have prompted the Toraja communities to resist the threats posed by

tourism. Your answer must be a minimum of 700 words and maximum of

1000 words.

Question 2

2. In many Muslim countries, strict standards exist regarding the appearance and

behavior of Muslim women, who must carefully cover themselves in public.

Tourists in these countries often disregard or are unaware of these standards,

ignoring the prevalent dress code, appearing half-dressed (by local standards)

in revealing shorts, skirts or even bikinis, sunbathing topless at the beach or

consuming large quantities of alcohol openly. Besides creating ill-will, this

kind of behavior can be an incentive for locals not to respect their own

traditions and religion anymore, leading to tensions within the local

community. The same types of culture clashes happen in conservative

Christian communities in Polynesia, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.

Question: Using the contact hypothesis, describe the potential outcomes of the

tourist-host contact indicated above. Be sure to discuss the outcomes in terms

of tourist-host attitudes, interactions, perceptions, values, and communication.

Your answer must be a minimum of 700 words and maximum of 1000 words.
