Slides from “Indigenous knowledge, standards, and knowledge management"


After many years of being overlooked and marginalized, there is now growing awareness of the importance of Indigenous knowledge, and the need for information systems and standards that support it. Developing these in ways that are respectful of the context - cultural, historical, and more - as well as the ownership of this information, is vital. With numerous conversations about these issues taking place around the world, it's time to move from words to action. The participants in this session, who represent a variety of perspectives, will share their thoughts on where we should be focusing our efforts through a mix of presentations, roundtable discussion, and audience participation.

We recommend that you watch these presentations by two of the speakers, Stacy Allison-Cassin and Melissa Stoner, ahead of the live session.
