The Equity for Indigenous Research and Innovation Coordinating Hub at New York University, in collaboration with the Penobscot Nation in Maine and the Native Nations Institute at the University of Arizona, will deliver enhanced education and professional training on intellectual property and Indigenous data sovereignty to Native American tribal librarians, archivists, and museum professionals. The training is designed to enhance tribal capacity to address important legal and governance issues in the ongoing management and preservation of Native American collections that reside within community contexts as well as in cultural institutions across the United States. The workshops are Indigenous-led by community, legal, and policy experts and extends the Native Intellectual Property Intensive Training. The educational model will lead to the substantive education of 60 Native librarians, archivists, and museum professionals from 30 tribes in intellectual property, strategic legal negotiation, and Indigenous data sovereignty.
