Participants: Bob Downs Ruth Duerr Megan Carter Philip Tarrant Ruth Duerr Shelley Stall New folks: Paul L, previously supporting Dept of State and now a consultant Erin Antognol, USDA
Action Items: 1. Provide a video of the CARE Principles for Indigenous Data Governance - Shelley Stall, Compeleted 9/11
- "I found a really great recording from last month, delivered at OCLC, that includes significant content on the role of repositories.
Notes: After welcoming our new members Paul and Erin, Ruth shared the link to the spreadsheet with FAIR, CARE and TRUST and their elements listed: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1TAtq_2irdgfnM0_y5TZuNf6Vvd6vQNFsM8bCJJymWA8/edit?usp=sharing
We decided to start with CARE, which is a newer framework. https://www.gida-global.org/care
C = Collective Benefit A = Authority to Control R = Responsibility E = Ethics
C1 - For inclusive development and innovation Governments and institutions must actively support the use and reuse of data by Indigenous nations and communities by facilitating the establishment of the foundations for Indigenous innovation, value generation, and the promotion of local self-determined development processes. Discussion: The phrase "use and reuse" indicates that this principle would benefit from all the principles in FAIR.
It would be important to define "what data" would be considered indigenous data.
Establishing relationships with the indigenous community associated with the data in a scientific repository would ensure that intended practices for sharing and using the data were in place, monitored, and managed. This seems important. The repository is "being the steward of the data on behalf of the community". There could be a type of partnership that could also advocate for the community such that if a researcher sought use of indigenous data that they would be made aware of their responsibility to the effected community by sharing the results of their research - or some other relevant way of "giving back".
The level of detail of the data needs to be considered. For instance, a satellite image could be so broad, with limited detail, that individual requests to use/display the content of the image would be challenging. But, at a finer resolution, permission would be required.
The concept of "data production" versus "knowledge production" as it applies to indigenous communities might be a helpful construct.
Ex: Acola negotiates usage of data where it allows access, but not to all. For example, hunting sites are protected.
C1 - Access and controls would need to be put into place for protected data.
