Indigenous data sovereignty is the right of a nation to govern the collection, ownership, and application of its own data. It derives from tribes’ inherent right to govern their peoples, lands, and resources. The Summit attendance was made up of academic researchers, individuals who work with tribal communities at the city, county, and state levels, tribal data practitioners, and elected tribal leaders. With this depth of representation, we aimed to gain a deeper understanding of how to enhance and strengthen tribal data systems. The presentations and discussions focused on data collection, data analysis, data capacity building and workforce competency around data management and ownership. The Summit outcomes highlighted the need to develop stronger relationships with tribal nations and provided valuable insights on methods to accomplish this.
