Indigenous Data Ethics:
The EJM follows the Global Indigenous Data Alliance CARE Principles for Indigenous Data Governance. The CARE principles recognize Indigenous Peoples’ rights to data governance protected under international law and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The CARE Principles acknowledge the importance of collective benefit, authority to control, responsibility, and ethics for the governance of Indigenous data.

According to the Global Indigenous Data Alliance,
“The CARE Principles for Indigenous Data Governance are people and purpose-oriented, reflecting the crucial role of data in advancing Indigenous innovation and self-determination. These principles complement the existing FAIR principles encouraging open and other data movements to consider both people and purpose in their advocacy and pursuits” (2022).

Following the #BeFAIRandCARE principles some data on EJM may not be publicly available for direct download to respect the requests of Indigenous data contributors. Please contact the EJM project staff at email@example.com to request access.
