Dr Stuart Barlo is an Aboriginal man from the Yuin nation from the far south coast of New South Wales.

Stuart is Interim Dean of Gnibi College of Indigenous Australian Peoples. Stuart has been a lecturer with Gnibi College of Indigenous Peoples since 2013, teaching and writing courses. Prior to this, Stuart was a social worker working in remote Australia and in disability services before undertaking a Bachelor of Indigenous Studies and moving to academic work.


Stuart's PhD uses Indigenous Australians’ understanding of the concept of yarning and its underlying principles and protocols to develop an Indigenous research methodology. Stuart then used this method to understand and investigate the restoration of dignity for Aboriginal men. This process has prompted a dialogue on the theory surrounding the concept of the agency of Indigenous knowledge.
