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 Indigenous Genetic Engineering 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 2023 will be held in-person in Prior Lake, Minnesota!
Pending a safe public health climate, we will be hosting the 2023 IndigiData workshop on tribal lands in Minnesota. As part of our effort to highlight Indigenous sovereignties, the workshop will take place in Prior Lake, MN, at the Bay at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel, owned by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community.
Flights, accommodation, and all meals are provided for workshop participants.
