Contextualisation of mathematics for Indigenous children has received an increased degree of attention over the past two decades. This paper offers an Indigenous perspective to contextualised activities undertaken at one Indigenous learning space, an inner-city kindergarten and pre-school centre (referred to throughout this paper as The Centre), situated in Brisbane, Queensland. It discusses these activities from the perspectives of cultural safety and empowerment.
