Perpetuating Atayal Farming Traditions

The Huffington Post featured a refreshing story about two Atayal 泰雅 tribe members, who’ve been re-kindling ancestral practices of farming indigenous varieties of plants, which have proved more resilient, than other so-called improved crops, in adapting to the ever changing climate.

From the video, one of the article’s protagonists  appears to come from the village of Smangus 司馬庫斯, in Hsinchu county. A place known for its success in preserving local aboriginal culture all while rejuvenating the local economy through sound development of tourism. You can learn more about it here, and here.

    1. Thanks for sharing David! Lucky you got to visit the place too. It’s nice such corners still exist in Taiwan. 🙂
