Adventures in Indigenous thinking

Tyson Yunkaporta
Text Publishing

Tyson Yunkaporta’s previous book Sand Talk discussed how indigenous thinking and approaches to things such as nature, education and the economy can help arrest social and environmental destruction.

Mr Yunkaporta’s latest work, Right Story, Wrong Story savagely refutes the way the western world has created a system where “every day more of us become collateral damage in the scorched-earth policies of an economic experiment scaled to the planetary level”.

In a slightly manic writing style, he talks instead to indigenous people around the world, getting their perspectives on everything from gendered violence to the creation of energy.
