IndigiData is intended to serve as a one-week (4 days) Indigenous Data Science Education workshop each summer to introduce data science and informatics skills to tribal undergraduate and graduate students.
Our first workshop this year will focus on environmental microbiomes and we will walk participants through a guided demonstration of how to use computational skills to analyze sequencing data.
In addition, we offer an Indigenous-centered curriculum that is led by Indigenous data scientists. All of our workshop activities will center Indigenous data sovereignty and data ethics while also providing students valuable insight into the emerging data and technology career fields.
Students will be provided a stipend for their time spent over the workshop.
