Ethnomedicinal plants are playing a significant role to cure various diseases. In this present manuscript the authors were documented the conventional practices of therapeutic medicinal plants by Sahara tribal groups of Kangaon village of Bargarh District, in western Odisha, India. As this village is the residence of both the authors ARS and MS, observation of plants and close interactions with the local practitioners of Sahara tribes to extract the data were done regularly. In this present manuscript authors had documented a total of 52 plant species belong to 45 genera and 32 families based on their ethno-botanical significance. Due to communication problems and systematic transmission among young generation the conventional knowledge may be decline. Hence it is urgent to document such knowledge of elderly peoples. Several species of the present study can be further studied for their pharmacological activity and active compounds.
