|標 題：||The Council of Indigenous Peoples Responded to the External Doubts about the Site Selection Result of the National Museum of Indigenous Peoples|
The responses to the external doubts about the Council’s selection of Cheng Ching Lake Park as the site of Original National Museum of Indigenous Peoples (hereinafter referred to as the Original Museum) are as follows:
1. In legitimacy of site re-selection: the site selection evaluation of the Original Museum according to the resolution of Legislature by the Council of Indigenous Peoples not only showed its respect for public supervision but also included the cities and counties across the country into the scope of site selection and made it more legislative.
2. Lack of fair of 2 proposals: in order to seek for the best Museum base, the site selection group recommended local governments to propose based on the actual conditions during the site investigation. For the sake of fairness, the Council asked the local governments to resubmit the feasible recommendations and the process could be made to public for criticism.
3. Population insufficiency of indigenous peoples in the base selected, keeping away from the indigenous villages: Kaohsiung is an important southern city in Taiwan which connects the 180,000 indigenous peoples from Tainan City, Pingtung County and Taitung County as well as 27 indigenous villages that makes it a densest region for indigenous peoples and Pingpu Indigenous Peoples groups, thus reinforcing the interactions and communications between indigenous villages and Museum and promoting the development of indigenous village in terms of education, culture and cultural innovation.
4. Political aspect, without taking resource distribution justice into consideration: for the sake of justice and fairness as well as objectiveness of site selection for Original Museum, the Council specially invited the professionals from related field to form a site selection group and carried out site selection evaluation based on their professions. They finally selected the base regardless of the political factors.
5. Mis-evaluation of base area to be selected in New Taipei City: it was asserted by the New Taipei City government that the available areas of San Ying Park was 30 hectares, however, the actually available ones were 3 hectares; and the actual area accessible to in Cheng Ching Lake Park, Kaohsiung reached 14 hectare that obviously surpassed the base to be selected in New Taipei City.
