The 'Cultural Atlas' proposed by the PIP (People, Identity, Place) research cluster at James Cook University aims to contextualize cultural communities and artists in North Queensland into a comprehensive profile. Case study Ronald "Tonky" Logan is a North Queensland Aboriginal Country Western musician.
The secondary theme of this article is the appropriation of Country Western music by Australian Aboriginal groups as traditional music. This article draws on research by Dunbar-Hall & Gibson (2004), who demonstrate the relevance of contemporary music within Australian Aboriginal contexts, based on location and geography, as a means of establishing people, identity and place.
