The guidebook is based on the knowledge of 14 Mikisew Cree First Nation traditional harvesters and community members, and focuses on plants and animals within the traditional territory of MCFN.

Two versions of the guidebooks were produced: a community version containing all knowledge shared by interviewees, and a public version with sensitive (e.g. medicinal, ceremonial) details removed.
