Indigenous Metadata Bundle Communiqué

Indigenous metadata provides critical organization and structure for Indigenous Peoples’ data to be findable, accessible, interoperable and with proper attribution, which enables governance, decision-making and cultural authority by Indigenous Peoples. Indigenous metadata guides the inclusion of cultural context, data protections, and ownership for Indigenous rights holders. This helps to recognize, refine, and define the relationships that Indigenous Peoples have with their data.
