Abstract: This is a formal ethnobotanical report on the Zuñi by a noted early authority. She presents specific data on plants used as food, in medical practice, and in weaving, dyeing, basketry, pottery decoration, toiletry, folk-lore and ceremonies; clan and other names derived from plants; and a separate listing of plants. Whenever possible the author gives the botanical name, common English name, Zuñi name and its derivation, and a brief description of the usage or beliefs related to each plant. Considerable information on Zuñi culture is presented as incidental to the discussion of plants and their use.
