In partnership with Philanthropy Australia, Seer Data & Analytics will be facilitating an important conversation with a panel of First Nations leaders and emerging leaders on Operationalising Indigenous Data Sovereignty.
Storytelling is at the heart of Aboriginal culture and identity. Through the power of data, stories of Country and Community can be recorded, preserved, shared and analysed to help build knowledge and take action to disrupt disadvantage and close the gap.
However, data colonisation and extractive data practices are a concern for indigenous communities across Australia and, globally, data has been weaponised against Indigenous peoples.
The solution is to move towards true Indigenous Data Sovereignty (IDS) to facilitate Indigenous-led governance for First Nations communities.
