Team Human ep. 157: Tyson Yunkaporta “Everything Indigenous is Human”

Playing for Team Human today, senior lecturer in Indigenous Knowledges at Deakin University in Melbourne and author of “Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save The World,” Tyson Yunkaporta.

Yunkaporta helps us apply an indigenous lens to see our global crises in a more actionable and inclusive way. Where did western culture go wrong? How did the shift from a circular understanding of time to a linear model of time affect human perception of progress? How did indigenous practices of psychedelic drugs lose their meaning without their proper contexts and spiritual guidance?

In his opening monologue, Rushkoff discusses how regenerative thinking and practice can be applied across broad spectrums to help us understand how to integrate all parts of life — from production to externalities — into our actions and mindsets.
