Abstract: Examines the formation of one of the world's great colonial collections, the Australian ethnographic collection of the South Australian Museum. At its narrowest, analyses the transactions between Aborigines and Europeans which generated this collection within the frame of a developing local ethnographic tradition. At its widest, provokes a reexamination of the colonial frontier's role in Aboriginal/European history and a reexamination of the role of the ethnographic object.
