Sciences and the Sacred: Indigenous Data Sovereignty and Knowledge Stewardship

Sciences and the Sacred is a series designed to create safe, generative spaces for the University of Hawaiʻi community to come together in dialog about complex issues and explore topics from various knowledge systems.

In Spring 2022 the seminar series will center conversations with Indigenous practitioners from continental and oceanic spaces in a knowledge-sharing exchange to advance kanaka ʻōiwi efforts towards data sovereignty. It is our hope that creating dialogue between kanaka ʻōiwi and allies and other Indigenous communities will lay the groundwork for collaborative partnerships within Hawaiʻi that are grounded in Indigenous data sovereignty principles.

Hosted by the Hawaiʻi Sea Grant Ulana ‘Ike Center of Excellence and the Biocultural Initiative of the Pacific.
