*Aboriginal heritage service providers are usually a company or person(s) who are appropriately qualified in a discipline directly relevant to the management of Aboriginal cultural heritage such as anthropology, archaeology, history or a related discipline and/or someone who has the cultural authority and heritage knowledge for the land in question.
