Abstract—The present study aims at documenting the indigenous knowledge pertaining to the utilization of different medicinal plant species used by the Bodo-Kachari tribes of Karbi Anglong district of Assam. The investigation was carried out through conversation with local ojhas (i.e., local medicine practitioners) and also by observation and collection of the plant species in consultation with local experts. The present study deals with enumeration of medicinal usage of 44 plant species belonging to 34 families, used by the foresaid tribes for treatment of various ailments like cough, fever, dysentery, indigestion, headache, stomach-ache, diarrhoea, skin diseases, bone fracture, etc. Such explorations are essential from the view point of documentation and conservation of indigenous and traditional knowledge, which consequently helps in formulation of potential raw materials in modern pharmaceutical industry for further availability and utilization of mankind.
