IndigiData is a one-week Indigenous Data Science Education workshop each summer to introduce data science and informatics skills to tribal undergraduate and graduate students.

Our workshop this year will focus on Data of the Dakotas and we will walk participants through a guided informatics demonstration.

We offer an Indigenous-centered curriculum led by Indigenous data scientists. Our workshop activities center Indigenous data sovereignty and data ethics while also providing students valuable insight into the emerging data and technology career fields.

IndigiData 2022 will be held in-person in Mobridge, South Dakota!

Pending a safe public health climate, we will be hosting the 2022 IndigiData workshop on tribal lands in South Dakota. As part of our effort to highlight Indigenous sovereignties, the workshop will take place in Mobridge, SD, at the Bay at Grand River Casino & Resort, owned by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

Flights, accommodation, and all meals are provided for workshop participants.
