Camassia quamash - Camas - an important bulb in the diet of Indians.

 

"The way of life of the North American Indians revolved around an appreciation of all things living, and they often thanked a creature or plant before killing it, uprooting, picking or cooking. Often nomadic and self-sufficient, the way they used plants, many of which are now grown for ornament in modern gardens, make fascinating stories."
