Responsible open scholarship requires careful consideration of the needs and wishes of the people involved in the generating, cultivating, displaying, care-taking, and releasing of research data. That is particularly true with research involving human subjects, but the scope often warrants expansion to include information about traditional lands, community spaces, ancestry, cultural artifacts, and more. This workshop is intended to promote conscientious discussions about data sovereignty and data ethics well before the point of data publication. In particular, it will introduce the "CARE" principles for indigenous data governance--that is, Collective benefit, Authority to control, Responsibility, and Ethics--as well as Traditional Knowledge labels and other tools and methods researchers can use to improve the ethical dissemination and reuse of research data. The format of the workshop will be interactive, inclusive, and elicitive--intentionally opening space for all participants to offer their own insights and raise questions and concerns for the whole group to consider.
