Cul­ture of the Nine Tai­wanese eth­nic groups

Vision Magazine - - Destinations -

For­mosa Abo­rig­i­nal Cul­tural Vil­lage is lo­cated on the shore of Sun Moon Lake. It is the largest out­door mu­seum in Tai­wan and is nd ded­i­cated to dis­play­ing the tra­di­tional homes and ar­chi­tec­ture of the nine prin­ci­pal Tai­w­nanese abo­rig­ine tribes. The nine vil­lages ex­tend over an ex­pan­sive sec­tion of hillside, giv­ing an ac­cu­rate de­pic­tion of what tra­di­tional Tai­wanese vil­lages were like. Each com­mu­nity is sep­a­rated by trails so the sim­i­lar­i­ties and dif­fer­ences be­tween the tribal cul­tures are clearly dis­played. There is a ca­ble car po­si­tioned be­tween the lake and the vil­lage for easy ac­cess, with the ride of­fer­ing stun­ning panoramic views of the lake.
