Trilingual (English, French, Inuktitut) essay on botanical knowledge in Nunavik

The village of Kangiqsujuag in Nunavik and its surroundings as well at the National Park of Pingualuit, form a vast territory, which, despite appearances contains a great plant diversity. This work summarizes the botanical  knowledge of community elders about how plants were traditionally used and lists the Inuktitut names of the plants of the area.
