Indigenous knowledge on fibre extraction of Sunnhemp in Bundelkhand Region, India

Bhatt, K C; Saha, Deepankar

Abstract

Indigenous knowledge plays a vital role in assessing the trend of evolution of human civilization; hence documentation of local uses of plants and traditional practices developed through use of human intellect now has become an important activity due to implementation of various issues related to Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), etc. Keeping this in view, an attempt has been made to document indigenous knowledge on fibre extraction of sunnhemp still practiced in some pockets among the tribal communities of Bundelkhand region, reflecting to preserve the age old tradition of farming communities residing there.
