The Department of the Premier and Cabinet, Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation Division (DPC-AARD) administers the South Australian Aboriginal Heritage Act 1988. It has delivered 28 site recording workshops and seminars to Aboriginal communities in South Australia, and industry and other government agencies since 2006.
The workshops are designed as an introduction and a practical grounding to the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1988, risk management, site recognition, basic archaeological site recording, mapping and site conservation planning. Participants undertake exercises and record sites, but are not assessed.
Workshops are delivered to Aboriginal communities on country on request. The intended audience is Aboriginal people wanting to know more about the operations of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1988 and how to record their sites. These workshops are usually run over two or three days, and include in-class discussion, presentations and fieldwork. Shorter workshops and seminars are delivered to industry and government agencies to assist in understanding the relevance of the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1988 to their operations, and offer some basic site recognition skills for identifying archaeological sites.
Heidi Crow was instrumental in the development of the workshops, and has had continuous involvement with them. Ms Crow has extensive experience in working with Aboriginal people, both in the workshops and in wider work roles.
DPC-AARD staff have delivered cultural heritage management training to Aboriginal people and other government agencies within the last 12 months (valid at June 2013).
