The conclusion highlights increasing indigenous influence over genome research in ways that enhances indigenous sovereignty and livelihoods. It looks forward to additional innovations whereby indigenous ontologies influence how science gets done and more indigenous scientists get trained who might help re-shape genetic science fields to be more multi-cultural, less hierarchical, and more democratic.
