Abstract: The aim of this article is to show the different contradictions, tensions, and latent conflicts related to ethnic sports, public policies, and promotion of sports tourism in the Canary Islands. This article, based on ethnography and qualitative information, shows the development of certain ethnic sports in a tourist context. A case study was carried out in the island of Fuerteventura, where tensions and latent conflicts exist despite public policies actually supporting these sports practices -underlining their identity and cultural basis-. Such support is very frequently diffuse in terms of tourism policy, where attention to sport is mainly driven by active tourism. Likewise, those having a role in the tourism field assume different positions regarding the potential presence of these ethnic sports in it, a fact that makes the resulting tensions more evdient.
