Beyond Ones and Zeros

The Ethics of Indigenous Data Management

With Big Tech increasing the collection and analysis of data, clarifying the rules and ethics around who owns, manages, and uses that data is essential.

Robyn Rowe, a scholar in the Interdisciplinary Rural and Northern Health program at Laurentian University joins us on this episode of the Root & STEM podcast to discuss Indigenous Data Sovereignty, how “data” has a different meaning for Indigenous communities, and how the CARE Principles for Indigenous Data Governance offer a roadmap for fair and ethical data collection and usage.
