2012
  • I attended a university rock art field school on Ngadjuri Country in South Australia as part of my Graduate Certificate in Archaeology. My inquisitive nature led me to look closer to a feature I was drawn to in the landscape. This area had been archaeologically surveyed for over 40 years. After showing the Ngadjuri cultural heritage officers the feature that I had located, I learnt that it was a hunting hide. It ended up being the most intact hunting hide in Ngadjuri Country. After I returned home I kept in contact the Ngadjuri cultural heritage officers and they asked me if they could name the hunting hide 'Greenwood Hide', in honour of me locating it. 'Greenwood Hide' is now on the State Cultural Heritage Register

TESTIMONIALS

'I have had the pleasure of working with Kate over a number of years. During that time Kate has been respectful, professional and engaging. It has been refreshing to work with a person who is sensitive to cultural issues and contributes to our growth in Aboriginal archaeology' (MADONNA THOMSON Director, Jagera Daran Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Body, Jagera/ Yagera).

'Kate is an archaeologist and heritage specialist with a passion for the subject. Her empathy and cultural intelligence is built on many years working with Indigenous people. I have known Kate for nearly a decade and she has worked with me on various projects. In each case Kate's contribution made my work better' (NATHAN WOOLFORD, Archaeologist, Anthropologist, Gooreng Gooreng).

'For over a decade, I have been involved in various cultural heritage and cultural revival projects that directly or indirectly involved Kate Greenwood. I have been very impressed by her ethical integrity and her capacity to quickly understand and integrate with the needs of her clients. She shows great diligence in upholding the aims, restrictions and protocols of organizations and Indigenous families she was representing. Kate has worked in many official capacities within Councils, archaeological consultancies, and within universities. She is an adept mentor who always enjoys a good relationship with her students, yet she is equally very respectful to supervisors and elders. She is always keen to learn more and keen to develop useful, quality end products for her clients. Kate has diverse skills and lengthy experience in matters of cultural heritage, having handled all aspects from fieldwork to teaching to administration of this domain. She draws not only on her diverse working experience and tertiary qualifications, but also her family background in this work in Great Britain. Thus - to give just one example - for the Women's Hands basketry revival project, I witnessed Kate rapidly assemble information, permissions and images from museums across the continent and even overseas, developing a highly polished and invaluable product for the client.I have no hesitation recommending her' (DR RAY KERKHOVE, Historian-in-Residence Noosa Shire, Historian Aboriginal Environments Research Centre Department of Architecture University of Queensland, Executive Member Professional Historians Association of Queensland).

'My company was lucky enough to employ Kate for two years. At first we needed a trainer, but we got so much more. Kate is a fantastic teacher; she has an amazing spread of content knowledge and can manage a classroom really well, but she is also generous with her time and goes above and beyond to support her students achieve their goals. This was reflected in her consistently high student satisfaction ratings. But as an employer you get more than someone who can do their job really well. I was always confident that Kate would harness the resources and other team members required, maintain quality compliance, deadlines would be met, budgets would be monitored, and her perseverance along with her networks would help us get impossible projects off and running' (JOHN PEARSON, JP Consulting/ Look Now Training/ Indigenous Workstars).
