Abstract This study in sustainable development planning focuses on interactions among remote communities, protected areas and tourism. Through the case of Neyaashiinigmiing First Nation in Ontario, Canada, the study evaluates, in close co-operation with Native people and Parks Canada, potential linked to tourism in a sustainable development perspective. The field study also helps to put in perspective and to evaluate findings from the theoretical research. Along with the definition of objectives for indigenous tourism development, results from the Participatory Research Approach revealed that, even if all the necessary elements for positive interactions where in place, whether talking about community needs, nature protection or tourism, those element do not interact as well as they might for the moment. Therefore, the conclusions have a wide applicability to people in remote communities, protected areas and tourism, as well as to the people who do research with them.
