Abstract
The principle of cultural impeccability calls for the preservation of the knowledge base, the development of indigenous people's capacities, and the fair sharing of profits resulting from the commercial use of indigenous knowledge. Tribes living in Himachal Pradesh have their own language, dance, culture, festivals, and fairs. The tribes of Chamba district are spread throughout the state, and are cordial and identified by their cultures and traditions. The Himalayan region is famous for growing medicinal plants for centuries. The study area is Banet and Priyungal village located in Bhattiyat tehsil of Chamba district in Himachal Pradesh, India. Most of the scheduled tribes living in this area are Gaddis, Gurjars, Pangwala and Bhots and Bodhs. Primary data will be collected by conducting field survey from the tribes living there through questionnaire. There are many such plants and their parts, which are used by the local tribes in the cultural, traditional, festivals and fairs activities, but the outside world does not know about that plant. This study is to find about the flora’s used by the tribes in Himachal Pradesh by looking at its cultural (folklores, folk songs, folk talks, games, temples, creators, literatures, artistic, music, paintings), traditional, social, economic, and medical uses - aspects that have been a part of their daily lives since Vadic Period. Tourism has an impact on the lifestyle of the tribes living there, where changes can be seen in their cultural, traditional activities. In today's modern era, there is a need to identify and preserve that valuable plant, this study is a step in that direction.
