Book Gifts of the Land: Lil'wat Nation Botanical Resources
Gifts of the Land: Lil'wat Botanical Resources features knowledge that has been passed down through generations in the Lil'wat Nation.
This guide was inspired by the creation of the Lil'wat Botanical Resources Strategy which is a strategy to preserve and protect culturally important food and medicinal plants and fungi within Lil'wat Traditional Territory. The Botanical Resources Strategy was made through many people coming together to share knowledge about food and medicinal plants and fungi and plants used for other purposes such as crafts and building. It involved leadership from elders and gatherings with Lil'wat plant experts. Lil'wat elders and experts joined forest and cultural technicians to share and teach about plant uses harvest techniques and locations where plants require protection.
Through this joint effort Gifts of the Land: Lil'wat Botanical Resources was created for the enjoyment and usage of everyone.
