Barbara Weir, born c. 1945, is an Australian Aboriginal artist and politician. Born during the time of the Stolen Generations, she was removed from her family and raised in a series of foster homes. After reuniting with her mother in the 1960s and divorcing in 1977, Weir eventually returned to her family territory of Utopia. She became active in the local land rights movement and was elected the first woman president of the Indigenous Urapunta Council in 1985. Barbara began painting in 1989 and soon became recognised as a notable artist of Central Australia. Her work has been exhibited and collected by major institutions. She also managed her mother Minnie Pwerle’s career.
