An assumption of ethnomathematical research, widespread indistinctly by practitioners and critics of this academic field, is identified. This assumption concerns the relationship between mathematics and culture. We argue that many developments and theoretical conflicts within the field can be traced to that assumption. An alternative approach is proposed to explain ethnomathematical practice, trying to respond to some theoretical critiques and prompting new horizons for the academic field.
