Abstract: Chothe tribe is endemic to Manipur state. An ethnobotanical survey of the Lamlanghupi village of Bishnupur district has brought to light their valuable heritage of traditional customs relating to worship/religious ceremonies, food, dress, music, marriage, wine-making and herbal medicine. From the present study it is concluded that 19 genera belonging to 13 families are used for food and 63 genera belonging to 37 families are utilized for medicinal purposes. For the preparation of the local alcoholic beverage, 8 genera belonging to 7 families have been recorded, 13 genera belonging to 9 families are associated with religious rituals and 11 genera from 10 families are associated with myths and magico-religious beliefs.
