Abstract: The state of Arunachal Pradesh has 25 major tribes and many sub-tribes that belong to the Indo-Mongoloid group and comprise 63.66 % of the state’s population. The district of East Kameng is home to the Bangni tribe who practice Jhum, depend on forests for supplementing their daily needs and are now taking to the newer modes of land use and settled agriculture. They have evolved their culture and tradition, myths and folktales in close association with the nature and have an intricate understanding of the forests and natural resources. This paper attempts to describe 74 traditional medicinal and healing plants of this tribe, comprising of 4 Pteridophytes and 70 Angiosperms, belonging to 37 families. These could be screened for the active principles and assessed for their medicinal potential.
