This book describes how the Cree, Dene, and Metis people living in Canada’s northwest boreal forest region have traditionally used plants as food, medicines, and materials for handicrafts, technology, and ritual practices. It includes more than 200 plants and is the result of ethnobotanical fieldwork in 29 communities in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta.
