Existence of culturally and linguistically relevant information systems.
Operational criteria need to be agreed on for measuring cultural and linguistic relevance. Nonetheless, the spirit of this indicator is that indigenous cosmovisions are taken into account in the conceptual and operational definitions of information systems, and not merely the translation into indigenous languages of conventional information reflecting hegemonic ideologies and concepts. These agreements should be reached in conjunction with indigenous peoples’ organizations. The disaggregation proposed by “type of relevance” may include categories.
