Title: Indigenous data sovereignty and policy
Authors: Walter, Maggie
Year: 2021
Publisher: Routledge
Abstract:  "Around the world Indigenous peoples remain largely alienated from the collection, use and application of the data about them, their lands, and their cultures. This book investigates this problem, demonstrating how it disenfranchises Indigenous peoples from shaping policy to meet their needs. The book looks both at how policy is developed and implemented by a nation state in relation to its Indigenous peoples, and at how Indigenous nations develop policy related to their own peoples. Overall the book aims to elucidate the problems and challenges of the Indigenous data and Indigenous policy connection and address these across socio-cultural spheres, across Indigenous nations and across nation states. Arguments for both the problematics and remediating strategies of data and policy interactions are framed through the central concept of Indigenous data sovereignty, which asserts the rights of Indigenous peoples to own, control, access and possess data that derive from them, and which pertain to their members, knowledge systems, customs or territories. Bringing together the work of the work of more than 20, primarily Indigenous, scholars from seven nation states (Australia, United States, Canada, Aotearoa New Zealand, Mexico, Sweden and Spain), this book will be of considerable interest to researchers of Indigenous Studies across the world"
