Food Plants of Interior First Peoples

For centuries, Aboriginal peoples in BC have harvested a variety of wild plant foods. They learned which plants to eat, the best seasons for gathering, the most efficient methods of harvesting and the best ways to prepare them. Nancy Turner, an internationally renowned ethnobotanist, describes more than 150 plant foods used in the interior of British Columbia and northern Washington. She provides the plant’s common and Latin name, botanical description, distribution in BC and Aboriginal use.
