Indigenous data sovereignty (IDS) is the right of Indigenous peoples to govern the collection, ownership, and application of data about Indigenous communities, peoples, lands, and resources. IDS comprises the entitlement to determine how Indigenous data are governed and stewarded--Indigenous data governance. Over the past three years, and during the first iteration of the Open Data Charter, IDS has become a globally active movement. The initial phase raised awareness of IDS within Indigenous nations and nation-state data entities. However, in the open data community, there remains a general lack of knowledge or understanding of IDS. To date, open data policy discussions have largely been framed around the needs and interests of nation-states and open data advocates, with minimal Indigenous engagement. The dialogue in this session will focus on the tension between IDS and open data, and potential paths forward.
