What happens when global systems are viewed from an Indigenous perspective? How does it affect the way we see history, money, power and learning? Could it change the world?

This remarkable book is about everything from echidnas to evolution, cosmology to cooking, sex and science and spirits to Schr dinger's cat.

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.

Most of all it's about Indigenous thinking, and how it can save the world.

    This is a powerful book. It is multiple yarns, woven around campfires, yet explained in a deeply erudite way, to help us take in the metaphors and the multidimensional experience of reality, to expand our minds. I will re-read it and share it because what is unfolding in these pages with great humour and intelligence is essential for our world: for humankind, for the Earth, our home. Read and digest this experience.
