Abstract This paper looks at the implications of decolonising methodologies on mathematics education research with Indigenous communities. It uses a study of remote Indigenous assistants being supported to become effective mathematics tutors of at-risk Indigenous students to draw implications for the application of the Empowering Outcomes research model for remote Indigenous research sites. It discusses the results of the study in terms of benefit and empowerment, and draws conclusions with respect to research designs that benefit the researched.
