Walking with Aalasi: An Introduction to Edible and Medicinal Arctic Plants is a bilingual (Inuktitut and English) resource about the traditional plant knowledge of Inuk herbalist Aalasi Joamie. Growing up in Pangnirtung, Aalasi learned about Arctic plants from her mother. She continued learning about plants and their uses when she relocated to Niaqunngut. From her father she understood how to use plants as indicators much like a compass. Her traditional knowledge of plants for food and in healing is documented through brilliant colour images of the plants and their habitat as well as her explanations in syllabics and English. Plants uses for Arctic Cotton, Lamp Moss, Arctic Willow, Snow-bed Willow, Net-Vein Willow, Dwarf Fireweed, Mountain Sorrel, Alpine Bistort, Crowberry, Bearberry, Blueberry, Labrador Tea, Seaside Bluebells, Mountain Avens, Peat Moss, River Algae, Snow Lichen, and Dried Mushroom are explained. The author also shares her knowledge about midwifery, changes to the Inuit lifestyle, the environment, and worldview in this accessible book from Inhabit Media.
