UWinnipeg introduces toolkit, webinars to support Indigenous data management

August 16, 2021
The University of Winnipeg is introducing an online toolkit and six webinars to support Indigenous data management. The resources were developed with support from the Manitoba Network Environment for Indigenous Research (NEIRH). They will provide community members with basic information on research data management, Indigenization and decolonization of data management, data organization, data management of technologies, and management of access to data. “There has been a fair amount of research promoting the importance of Indigenous data sovereignty and governance, but not on the practicalities and technical details of Indigenous data management,” said Dr Jaime Cidro, UWinnipeg AVP, Research and Innovation. “Our hope is that these tools will support Indigenous organizations, communities, and researchers on their journeys to Indigenous data sovereignty and self-determination in research.” Nation Talk (MB)
