Reindeer Lichen - (Cladonia rangiferina) -  Other common names include reindeer moss and caribou moss, but these names may be misleading since it is not a moss. Found primarily in areas of alpine tundra, it is extremely cold-hardy. The Inland Dena'ina used reindeer lichen for food by crushing the dry lichen and then boiling it or soaking it in hot water until it becomes soft.
