For The Wild

This week we are rebroad­cast­ing our inter­view with Tyson Yunka­por­ta orig­i­nal­ly aired in May of 2021. Strug­gling to change actu­al con­di­tions, many have set­tled for chang­ing the per­cep­tions of the world around us. Tyson Yunka­por­ta begins by shar­ing the con­nec­tions between per­cep­tion, the brand­ing of our iden­ti­ties, and the many forms of cap­i­tal that become avail­able and valu­able in a per­cep­tion-obsessed soci­ety. As we wel­come the call to change our con­di­tions and par­tic­i­pate in the great thou­sand-year clean-up, we explore hybridized insight, the ram­i­fi­ca­tions of cling­ing to dichoto­mous iden­ti­ties, and how gen­uine diver­si­ty is tan­gi­ble pre­pared­ness and emo­tion­al resilience in motion. With this in mind, it becomes our task to fig­ure out how we can sus­tain gen­uine diver­si­ty in our lives so we may work along­side folks with dif­fer­ent capac­i­ties, world­views, solu­tions, and thought process­es in devo­tion to dis­man­tling a sys­tem that neces­si­tates abuse. 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.
