Dr. Angela Mashford Pringle presented the 2022 Keynote Address at the 2022 Research Data Management Library Academy Symposium.
Presentation Abstract: What is Indigenous Data Sovereignty? Looking at Indigenous ways of knowing and principles of research, I will discuss research areas that need improvement to ensure that Indigenous voices are meaningfully engaged throughout research including in theory and methods. A discussion of different Indigenous research methods will provide some examples of the “doing” of research followed by how to be culturally safe while nurturing relationships with Indigenous peoples, communities and organizations. Discussion of the OCAP Principles, research licenses, and protocols of engagement are also important to understanding Indigenous data sovereignty and how to ensure that Indigenous voices are heard.
