The arts and crafts produced by Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders are the embodiment of creative expression, particularly in Queensland where they reflect the state's uniqueness and geographic diversity. Queensland is the only state to have two distinct indigenous groups, Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders, with many more cultures within these two groups. The aim of this Masters research is to place North Queensland's history of arts and crafts into the psyche of artists, arts workers and critical authorities, to challenge conventional paradigms of the tourist industry. It does not, however, propose what new directions should be taken, but rather evokes serious discussion that can contribute to successful outcomes for Indigenous people.
