The Impact of Data Sovereignty on American Indian Self-Determination
Track: Tribal/Indigenous Programs
Authors: Joseph Robertson
The basis for my work is further examining the ideas of self-determination and tribal sovereignty beyond the legal and political definitions to provide a more modern approach to regaining eroded sovereignty through Indian Data Sovereignty. Data sovereignty reflects how these concepts relate to cultural capital, educational praxis, and finally GIS/spatial analysis in developing this platform through statistical design theory.
