Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save the World, a book written by Indigenous Australia author Tyson Yunkaporta, covers everything from echidnas to evolution, cosmology to cooking, sex and science and spirits to Schrödinger’s cat. Yunkaporta looks at global systems from an Indigenous perspective. He asks how contemporary life diverges from the pattern of creation. How does this affect us? How can we do things differently?
Yunkaporta discusses how Indigenous thinking can save the world by providing a template for how to live a sustainable life. Sand Talk is about how lines and symbols and shapes can help us make sense of the world. About how we learn, how we remember, how we talk to others and how we listen. Yunkaporta stresses the importance on finding the differences and examining them thoughtfully.
