ABOUT EVENTIndigiData is a one-week (4-6 days) Indigenous data science education workshop each summer to introduce data science and informatics skills to tribal undergraduate and graduate students. The program features an Indigenous-centered curriculum that is led by a community of Indigenous data scientists and guest faculty. All workshop activities will center Indigenous data sovereignty and data ethics while also providing students valuable insight into the emerging data and technology career fields. This program aims to:
- provide a space for teaching data science and ethics intersected with Indigenous culture,
- provide hands-on opportunities for students to learn command-line programming and analytic skills, and
- leverage expertise from Indigenous mentors.
