Indigenous Data Sovereignty ‘What Works’ Workshop, hosted by Te Mana Raraunga, the Māori Data Sovereignty Network.

This two day workshop brings together a diverse group of speakers from Aotearoa NZ and overseas to share examples of how Indigenous data sovereignty is working in a range of local and national settings.  The focus is on 'by Indigenous, for Indigenous' data-driven solutions and innovation. The interactive format encourages small group discussions and collective strategising.
