Native scholars working to advance the research on indigenous data sovereignty give their perspectives on the issues facing Native communities around data collection and date use. Dr. Jameson D. Lopez (Fort Yuma Quechan (Kwatsáan) Indian Tribe), Carmenlita Chief (Navajo Nation), and Dr. Tennille Marley (White Mountain Apache Tribe) all share examples on what they have witnessed and experienced as Native researchers and scholars in applying the considerations for data sovereignty in their work and their communities.

More resources about indigenous data sovereignty can be found on the US Indigenous Data Sovereignty Network website.
