Description


This book describes the traditional Native American uses of more than 200 plants from Northern forests. Over 100 elders contributed information that they felt should be shared with other communities. Native and non-Native students worked together to collect plant specimens and record traditional knowledge about the use of plants for medicine, handicrafts, technology, and ritual practices.

Entries with photographs for each plant are arranged according to plant family and include information on physical descriptions, habitat, uses for food, technology, medicine, and potential economic use. The book also includes an explanation of the research approach, a literature review, and an overview of the ecological and cultural background of the area.
