We initiated the Indigenous Protocol and Artificial Intelligence Working Group with two workshops in 2019.
Thirty-five individuals accepted the invitation to participate. They are members of Kanaka Maoli, Palawa, Barada/Baradha, Gabalbara/Kapalbara, Gadigal/Dunghutti, Māori, Euskaldunak, Baradha, Kapalbara, Samoan, Cree, Lakota, Cherokee, Coquille, Cheyenne, and Crow communities from across Aotearoa, Australia, North America and the Pacific as well as several non-Indigenous scholars. Their bios can be found here.
Workshop 1 was held at the Ka Waiwai Collective Hawaiian cultural hub in downtown Honolulu and at the Laboratory for Advanced Visualization & Applications (LAVA) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The workshop took place over two days and was a combination of welcomes, introductions and an extended brainstorm.
Date: March 1 - 2, 2019
Workshop 2 was an eight day writing/artist residency. This was held in two private residences in the Kāhala area of Honolulu. The focus was on producing texts that responded to the concerns raised in Workshop 1 and subsequent conversations.
Date: May 26 - June 1, 2019.
