On May 18, 2018 at the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (NAISA) Conference in Los Angeles, six leading scholars discussed the landscape and global opportunities and challenges Indigenous peoples face in the growing Indigenous data sovereignty movement. The presentations provided updates from the six nation-states represented and collaborative work internationally. The panel revealed the need for a shift toward Indigenous data governance as a means to Indigenous data sovereignty, and the challenges when Indigenous peoples do not have formal government-to-government recognition from the nation-states in which they share a geography and when Indigenous peoples' live in extremely rural locations.
Panelist included were;
Chairs: Stephanie Carroll Rainie, University of Arizona, United States / Maggie Walter, University of Tasmania, Australia
Presenters: Per Axelsson - Umeå University, Sweden / Maui Hudson, University of Waikato, Aotearoa / Jennifer Walker, Laurentian University, Canada / Oscar Figueroa-Rodríguez, Campus Montecillo, Colegio de Postgraduados, Mexico
