Transactions and Transformations: artefacts of the wet tropics, North Queensland is a volume in the Memoirs of the Queensland Museum – Culture series. This volume explores the ways in which artefacts made by the Aboriginal peoples of the Wet Tropics, North Queensland, have been acquired, exchanged, contested and transformed. It also examines the changing representations of the makers of those artefacts over the past one hundred and fifty years. Weaving together anthropological, archaeological and historical perspectives, its eight articles offer fresh insights into the dynamics of ethnographic collecting, Indigenous trade and communications, identity construction, Aboriginal art and the curatorship of artefacts. At the centre of the collection is the understanding that transactions in Aboriginal artefacts have been transformative for all parties involved, and those transformations resonate through to the present day.
