The subject of this thesis is how tourism, particularly cultural tourism, is used as a development strategy in Newfoundland, using the town of Trinity as a case study. I examine the possible consequences of manipulating the culture of a people to create a particular image for the promotion of tourism. Finally, I seek to place the study of tourism within the discipline of anthropology at the Memorial University of Newfoundland, and encourage further research. -- Keywords: commoditization; commodity; cultural; culture; development; dependence; Newfoundland; tourism; tourists; Trinity; underdeveloped; underdevelopment.
