  • Bureau of Culture Park

    Experience the Charm of the Indigenous Culture Park The Indigenous Culture Park was opened to the public in 1987. It was established as an outdoor museum in the Fuguwan region, which in the Paiwan language means "fertile land". It is located near the Ailiao River at the foot of Dawu Mountain, in Beiye Village of Majia Township in Pingtung County, and is at the border of Majia Township and Sandimen Township. To enter the park, it is necessary to pass Shueimen, which is the transportation hub for the three indigenous villages of Sandimen, Majia, and Wutai. Living nearby are the Paiwan and Rukai tribes, and so the area is immersed with indigenous cultures. The park has a total area of 82.65 hectares, at an elevation of between 145 and 220 meters. The park is rich in natural beauty with diverse landscapes. It is divided into four sections:     1. Reception for Visitors This section includes the Special Exhibition Room, Artifact Display Room, Audiovisual Room, Handicrafts Room and Octagonal Special Display Hall to provide an overview of Taiwan's colorful cultural diversity of the twelve officially recognized tribes. The exhibits in the Artifact Display Room are mostly the daily necessities and working tools once used by Taiwan's indigenous tribes. They are the testament to the intelligent application of their knowledge of nature to their daily lives. Next door to the Artifact Display Room is the Audiovisual Room, which provides film introduction about the past, present and future of Taiwan's indigenous tribes.     2.
