Digital technology for the Indigenous, of the Indigenous, and by the Indigenous

The information systems discipline (IS) has been at the forefront of helping organisations and society navigate the rapid terrain of technological change. However, despite decades of IS research, very few studies have examined the ICT-related experiences and practices of Indigenous people, as well as the digital artefacts they develop. The lack of IS research on Indigenous people is surprising because, in the last few decades, Indigenous people have purposefully begun using technology as a platform to reclaim their cultural identity and represent their cultural values in digital artefacts. The paucity of work in this domain may be both a cause and a consequence of the underrepresentation of indigenous groups within IS. Western worldviews, theories and assumptions continue to dominate the IS literature and are accepted and taken for granted as the normal way of doing things.
