Indigenous Friends App: Owning and Decolonising Mobile Technology from a Non-Technical Person

In this talk, Ruth will express what she learned about the possibilities of decolonising technology and Indigenous control of both the design and the content of mobile technology. She will discuss her experiences with graduate student Alejandro Mayoral and the local Indigenous community in building a smartphone app. Of particular focus will be her engagement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in intentional relationships as part of the project.
