dc.description.abstract The study of ethnobotany relating to any tribe is in itself a very intricate or convoluted process. The Northeastern part of India is well known for production of household liquors, which is associated with the regions rich indigenous knowledge system. The paper documents the traditional knowledge for the preparation of starter cultures used by the indigenous tribes through structured questionnaires in consultations with a few ethnic tribes residing in isolated pockets of Northeast India. The study revealed that the methods for production of household liquors among the different tribes vary, as all of them follow their own indigenous protocols, where they use different plants during the preparation of starter culture although the substrate employed as the source of carbon is common. The study thus highlights the potentials of the ethnobotanical research and the need for documentation of traditional knowledge pertaining to the production of alcohol. en_US
