Brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group: 

The global call for Indigenous data sovereignty —the right of a nation to govern the collection, ownership, and application of its own data—has grown in intensity and scope over the past five years. At the same time, researchers, data repositories, and data service operations are increasingly aware of the need to choose and prioritise data governance and stewardship mechanisms that align with Indigenous rights and Indigenous aspirations to improve data quality and functionality.
The RDA International Indigenous Data Sovereignty IG was formed in response to the need for a wider understanding of Indigenous Data Sovereignty, providing an avenue and space for high level collaborative engagement in the rapidly developing environment of Indigenous data.
The goals of the International Indigenous Data Sovereignty IG are clearly aligned with the RDA mission of creating a global community to develop and adopt infrastructure that promotes data-sharing, data-driven research, and data use.

Short Group Status: 

The International Indigenous Data Sovereingty Interest Group hosted a workshop to draft principles of Indigenous data governance at RDA P12 in Gaborone, Bostwana. This meeting will discuss the final principles, strategize for adoption and implementation of the principles, discuss the relationship of the principles to RDA and the FAIR principles, and strategize for future IG and/or WG activities.
