Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document 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.
