This talk will start with introducing Indigenous Data Sovereignty, with particular reference to Māori Data Sovereignty and the work that Te Mana Raraunga are doing. It will then go on to discuss how, by using open source tools, we can exercise this sovereignty. This is important for libraries and other GLAM sector institutions to be aware of, as traditionally they have assumed they have sovereignty over data collected by them.
