Summary
Examines the ways in which the Kimberley spearpoint has been recontextualised through cross-cultural colonial encounters; contexts within which the spearpoints were manufactured and consumed post-contact; the role of material objects in colonial encounters; connections between material culture and colonialism; post-contact intensification of spearpoint production; control of raw materials as a power base for elder Aboriginal men; cross-cultural trade in material objects; the spearpoint as an expression of masculinity in both Aboriginal manufacturers and non-Aboriginal collectors; connections between spearpoint manufacture and new hybrid social identities
