Recommended Practice for Provenance of Indigenous Peoples’ Data

ENRICH is involved in developing the performance and accountability reporting for the Recommended Practice for Provenance of Indigenous Peoples’ Data.

This recommended practice details the rules by which the provenance of Indigenous peoples’ data should be described and recorded. This recommended practice outlines the core parameters for providing and digitally embedding provenance information for Indigenous Peoples’ data.

The recommended practice establishes common descriptors and controlled vocabulary for provenance, including recommendations for metadata fields that can be used across industry sectors, including machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) contexts, biodiversity and genomic science innovation and other associated databases.

This recommended practice supports proper and appropriate disclosure of originating data information. It also supports the long-term identification of Indigenous peoples’ data for future use, connecting data to people and place, and when appropriate, supporting future benefit sharing options.
