From the Cairns Post:

A Cairns art dealer accused of selling allegedly bogus Aboriginal art made by non-indigenous artists is being taken to court by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

Two of the non-indigenous artists use tribal names.

The ACCC says Doongal Aboriginal Art and Artefacts, which has galleries in Cairns and Kuranda, has misrepresented to the public that three of its 170 displayed artists are of Aboriginal descent.
