The Gwich’in Social and Cultural Institute plant database

March 5, 2013

If you are interested in ethnobotany, plants in general, anthropology, cultural-ecology, here is a great website (actually a portion of a website): The Gwich’in Social and Cultural Institute plant database.

A brief description from the website:

“In 1997, the Gwich’in Social and Cultural Institute in partnership with the Aurora Research Institute (ARI) began work with Gwich’in elders on an ethnobotany project. The results of this research are available in a joint publication called “Gwich’in Ethnobotany: Plants Used by the Gwich’in for Food, Medicine, Shelter and Tools” by Alestine Andre and Alan Fehr (2002). Information from this book and a Master’s thesis by Alestine Andre (2006) called, Nan t’aihnakwits’inahtsìh (The Land Gives Us Strength) have been used to create our Gwich’in ethnobotany database.”
