ABORIGINAL ARTEFACTS BANKA BANKA HOTEL, 2013.

Aboriginal Artefacts Banka Banka Hotel, 2013. Note the Leilira blade attached to the spear. These stone artefacts are one of the main items in the winnun trade cycle. I have argued that giving these blades to tourists, as exemplified here, is one way of deliberately disposing of them. Photograph by Kate Rogers.
