Design Brief 1.2
The indigenous tribes in Taiwan were the original inhabitants before the Han people invaded in 1900s. Nowadays the population of indigenous people in Taiwan is 2 % of Taiwan’s total population. These include fourteen tribes with fourteen different languages. Each tribe has their own unique culture and different rituals. It is really important to pass on the tradition and the artisanal techniques, to help the indigenous people find their own cultural heritage and further strengthen it. It is equally important to let the world know about the cultures.
My mission is to pass on the weaving techniques within Taiwan’s indigenous tribes and strengthen their own cultural heritage, also further introduce Taiwan’s indigenous culture to the world.
