EPISODE #14 – Tyson Yunkaporta
Can Indigenous thinking save the world? Tyson Yunkaporta’s new book “Sand Talk” explores this question, offering techniques and processes for living and learning. It’s a book of sense-making, bringing clarity to complexity, and is making a huge impact around the globe.
Tyson is a member of the Apalech Clan in far north Queensland, in Australia, and is also a senior lecturer in indigenous knowledges at Deakin University in Melbourne, working extensively with Aboriginal languages and in Indigenous education.
In this conversation, Tyson encourages us to look at global systems through an indigenous lens, challenging us to think differently, and reconsider our relationships with each other and the natural world around us. He is brutally honest and unfiltered, at times confronting, but always speaks with an incredible authenticity and passion – buckle up, you’re in for quite a ride!
