Pormpuraaw Cultural Uses for Plants is a comprehensive 160-page collection of information and photographs detailing the community’s traditional use of plants in the region.
Over 31 people from the Pormpuraaw community shared their knowledge of the traditional preparation and use of plants to develop the resource.
The book identifies over 100 plants with images. Elders helped to translate each plant name into the three local languages. The common and scientific names were also incorporated for each plant.
