CBC News from Canada reports on the Four Corners programme, Art for Art's Sake.
Unethical aboriginal art dealers are commonly called carpetbaggers in Australia.
Four Corners broadcaster Quentin McDermott said most insiders are afraid to speak publicly about industry practices.
Dealers and auction houses make millions of dollars from aboriginal art, he added.
As a signatory to the Indigenous Art Code we are committed to ethical and transparent business dealings with Indigenous visual artists and abide by the standards set out in the Code.
