  • I first heard about the Guugu Yimithirr tribe of Australia by reading this fascinating article in the New York Times about the way language influences the way we see the world. Apparently the Guugu Yimithirr speak about spacial concepts with cardinal directions always in mind, whereas we think spacial with reference to ourselves.
