EDIBLE AND MEDICINAL ARCTIC PLANTS:
AN INUIT ELDER'S PERSPECTIVE

As a little girl in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, Aalasi Joamie learned from her mother how to identify and harvest plants. Later, a mother herself and living in Niaqunnguuq, she continued the practice, living off the land and passing her knowledge on to the next generation. In this introductory guide to traditional plant use—originally published as Walking with Aalasi—Aalasi shares her memories and knowledge of eighteen plants commonly found in the Canadian Arctic.

From plant identification and enviornmentally respectful collection to traditional uses and recipes, this book teaches readers how to reap the benefits of the natural world around them.

Book plublished by Inhabit Media Inc. which is the first Inuit-owned, independent publishing company in the Canadian Arctic. They aim to promote and preserve the stories, knowledge, and talent of the Arctic, while also supporting research in Inuit mythology and the traditional Inuit knowledge of Nunavummiut (residents of Nunavut, Canada’s northernmost territory)
