Camas bulbs were traded widely by western tribes, to the extent that genetics are being used to determine where these species were actually native, where they were traded to, and where they persist today from remnant planted populations. 

Wapato is an aquatic bulb of shallow freshwater, another carbohydrate source. 

Brodiaeas were also eaten, and like Erythroniums, seem to be a lot of work for small edible bulbs.
