Tyson Yunkaporta

Tyson Yunkaporta is an academic, an arts critic, and a researcher who belongs to 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. Tyson 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? Tyson’s first book is Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save the World.
