How can we do things differently?
This remarkable book
is about everything from echidnas to evolution, cosmology to cooking, sex and science to spirits.
Tyson 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?
Sand Talk provides a template for living. It's about how lines and symbols and shapes can help us make sense of the world. It's about how we learn and how we remember. It's about talking to everybody and listening carefully. It's about finding different ways to look at things.
This book is an absolutely incredible read for anyone living in the world, it provides an alternate perspective on life and its workings. Most importantly, it tells us how Indigenous thinking can save the world! Which is evidently very needed in our contemporary world.
