Kisâkihitin and Data: Indigenous perceptions of data relations

Kisâkihitin and Data: Indigenous perceptions of data relations

Presenter: Kayla Lar-Son, Indigenous Programs & Services Librarian, Xwi7xwa Library, UBC

Indigenous data sovereignty is the principle that Indigenous peoples have the right to ownership and access of their data no matter where it is stored or who claims ownership of the information. Yet, due to issues with Canadian copyright and power imbalances in cultural heritage institutions, many Indigenous peoples are denied the right to both protect and access their own data. This session explores through the use of Cree principles and laws wahkohtowin, miyo-wîcêhtowin, and keeoukaywin, how we can begin to interact differently with data and learn to kisâkihitin data.

(This talk is immediately followed by Just what we needed(!?): Lessons from working together with a user-driven, open-source, geospatial tool to archive and share data across contextsThe Zoom URL is the same and participants are encourage to attend both talks.)
