There has been little effort in conceptualizing indigeneity in social computing, despite the concept being central to decolonial and postcolonial perspectives, which scholars have increasingly used in computing research for over a decade. It is crucial to reflect on who can be considered indigenous in the spirit of inclusion and reclamation since the underdevelopment of this concept and the nuances, differences, relationships, and overlaps between indigeneity and colonial marginalization may silence different populations in research. The workshop aims to bring together scholars whose works are associated with different local and indigenous cultures and their technology practices and experiences to initiate conversations around three themes: (a) defining indigeneity and identifying indigenous communities in social computing, (b) recognition in different sociopolitical contexts, and (c) contributions to social computing.
