The event highlighted their struggles of moving to Taipei from their tribes in pursuit of a career in music, as well as the incredible work ethic that city-dwelling indigenous peoples incorporate into their daily lives.
Booths were set up around the square featuring hunting culture, indigenous cuisine, traditional weaving crafts, and culture experiences showcasing indigenous traditional knowledge. There was also a special market dedicated to traditional arts and crafts, cultural creative and agricultural products, as well as specialty indigenous cuisine – fully showcasing the irresistible appeal of indigenous culture through the five senses with an experience that transcends ethnicities, regions, language, and art. The event highlights indigenous wisdom and traditional ways of life, all the while forging Taipei into a great city that encompasses many different cultures.
This year’s event will continue until the 2023 Taiwan Lantern Festival, the theme of which will be “Light Taipei, Taipei is the Future!” in hopes of illuminating the city where dreams take flight. Indigenous people from across Taiwan will be invited to Taipei for the 2023 National Indigenous Peoples Game in March of next year.
