    With its prime location on the edge of Sun Moon Lake, the Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village is an easy place to include during any Taiwanese aboriginal adventure. Here aboriginals perform traditional dances and other rituals and there’s nowhere else in Taiwan where you can see long-running cultural ceremonies up close and personal. For centuries the island of Taiwan, miles off the Asian mainland, has been a crossroads for traders and settlers, pirates and military schemers from around the world. Unlike China, with its long tradition of keeping foreigners out, Taiwan has a long history of interaction, both hostile and frien.

All tribes practised headhunting except the Yami people, who were previously isolated on Orchid Island as well as ethnically and culturally Ivatan people and . there are too few books on the Aboriginal people of Taiwan that are written without the exotic gaze of most western authors.

It looks extremely useful. Written in clear, accessible English and chock full of maps, photos, and cultural and historical information, this book has a special bonus: it is a bilingual text, written in both Chinese and English.
