Voice of Minorities in Taiwan

Xai-xia (Aborigine)

I am  very glad that we had a activity like that, we began to take  the aboriginal in Taiwan seriously.   I think every student has tried their best to prepare for their performance! Some of my classmates even stayed up late to do the project and board! Even though we didn't get very good grades, I still think it is worth to spend so much time on it!

Ping-pu (Aborigine)

Since I played just a little role in this activities,
I learn to listen to someone when he is speaking.
And try to make things understood-easy is a good idea to the leader.
About the minority cultures...
Yap,I know more about them, though not too much.



I like this activity very much. It gives me the chance to know the culture of Taiwan's aboriginal people correctly. After studying their culture, I certainly realize that they have abundant culture, much more than I thought. Before joining the activity, I just know that our aboriginal people only have some strange legends and are good at singing and dancing. I didn't know they also have various clothes and ceremony. I never thought that we should protect their culture at first because I thought that their culture is worthless. It is their culture which lead them to poverty. But I changed my thought now, their culture is worth saving. Why? To me, every culture is a kind of art which people adapt themselves to the environment. It takes a long time for them to be developed their culture. No one have the reason to destroy the work they have working on for hundred years, have they? The activity help me change my thought completely.  Besides, it also help me learned quickly, and the interaction in our class become better. I also learn some ways to lead activities and some ways to communicate. Although the activity take away a lot of my time, I know it is worth it.






Lu-kai (Aborigine)


Actually, I really learned a lot from this activity. Before the active performance, all my class paid our all attention to looking up the information that we needed. We also understand more about Yami, which we've never understood before.

        I was touched by our effort which means our union. Although the process was tough and tiring, I found that my life became full and fruitful because of these activities held by the school.

      I really hope that we can have more activities just like this, and then Taiwan's education system will get more lively and colorful!

Bu-nun (Aborigine)

My class did the study on "Bu-lun" in the activity. Some of my classmates visited the village in Kaohsiung County. The kind Bu-lun people lent us lots of objects, even the clothing. We also learnt a lot from them. I mean, the culture, their traditional food, and everything.
Besides the exhibition ,we also had the drama playing. I acted one of the clan and, fortunately had some lines.^^It was my first time to act in front of so many people. I was pretty nervous and excited about it.
After viewing others' work, I did learn a lot about the minority cultures and was very touched when listening to the speech. I think it was a terrific, excellent activity the school held. It helped a lot with my history studying, and because of that, I got to know my land better. The best way to solve racial problem is to understand and admit different cultures
