How Indigenous thinking can change the world - Tyson Yunkaporta
Static Preview

We all have a common story. We are moving toward a related way of being. 

The inaugural States of Change Learning Festival opens with award-winning author and thinker Tyson Yunkaporta. We're also joined by Angie Tangaere!  

We’re accustomed to a certain way of thinking. We want the world to be simple, but we talk about it in complicated ways. Indigenous thinking is different. It knows the world is complex and finds deep ways to communicate this knowledge through pictures, carving, stories. What happens if we bring an Indigenous perspective to the big picture - to history, education, money, power? Can we, in fact, have proper concepts of sustainable life without Indigenous knowledge?

Tyson Yunkaporta is an academic, an arts critic, and a researcher who is a member of the Apalech Clan in far north Queensland. He carves traditional tools and weapons and also works as a senior lecturer in Indigenous Knowledges at Deakin University in Melbourne. He lives in Melbourne.
