Understanding Project Stewardship

Learn about project stewarded posts, how to make them and how they can be used.

What is Project Stewardship?

Project stewarded posts are posts where the creator has granted a tagged project a license to use the post data. This is done by requiring consent from both user and project using project stewardship logic.

SIKU respects Indigenous knowledge and strives to protect it from misuse while encouraging its mobilization for the benefit of Indigenous self-determination.

It is the responsibility of all project stewards to ensure that they have done their due diligence in terms of signing agreements, obtaining permits/ethics approval or other mechanisms, regulations or laws governing research in their jurisdiction before using any post data. All usage must adhere to the SIKU Terms of Reference.

Project Stewardship Logic

For a post to be stewarded by a project, its’ creator must be a project member at the time of post creation AND the project must be tagged in the post.

Located in the defaults tab of post creation and editing, this post is stewarded by the “SIKU Hunting Stories Pilot Project”.
