Abstract: The Sonowal Kacharis tribe is confined to remote areas of the Brahmaputra Valley, Asssm. Like other tribals of India and abroad the Sonowal Kacharis also use some medicinal plants for controlling and curing their diseases. An attempt has been made to study plant based folk medicines used by this tribe for treatment of 19 different diseases, viz. asthma, ascariasis, diabetes, diarrhoea, diuretic, dyspepsia, dysentery, dysmenorrhoea, glossitis, mumps, oedema in pregnancy, oliguria, paralysis, paronychia, piles, pinworm infection, scabies, scanty lactation, tonsillitis, which are prevalent among them. First hand information on uses of 16 wild and 11 cultivated plant species have been reported in this paper for further research and revalidation of traditional uses of these plants.
