  • Maori Youth’s Experience of Ilisin in Taiwan

    The Maori youths of Ngāti Manu Tribe from North Island of New Zealand came to Hualian County as guests of Harawan Tribe to experience Ilisin and to know the indigenous culture in Taiwan. In many linguistic and archaeological researches, Taiwan is mostly considered as the origin place of Austronesian peoples. As such, Ngāti Manu thought that the indigenous peoples in Taiwan and the Maori have a deep kinship; Taiwan is “where all began”. To allow the younger generation to explore the origin of their ancestors, the Project Hawaiki Nui Culture Exploration has been initiated (Hawaiki means ancestral home, the start of the ancestors, or the place of origin in Maori language). Icyang Parod, the Chairman of Council of Indigenous Peoples, stated that New Zealand is the southernmost place where Austronesian peoples migrated to. Since both sides are similar in linguistic and cultural aspects, the Council strongly supports the Project. Through language, cultures, and ceremonies, children from both places can go to each others’ tribes and truly experience their deep connection. The Chairman further said that Austronesian languages are the most widely spread languages in the world. On such basis, the cultures and languages of the indigenous peoples in Taiwan shall be the bridge that links the world. All must come to fruition by the efforts of every people for promoting cultural revival and heritage together. The Project Hawaiki Nui Culture Exploration was initiated in last (2018) August. Many youths have been sent to visit each other. In this year’s project, the youths from Ngāti Manu Tribe came and stayed Taiwan once again from Aug. 14th to 24th. After tonight’s Ilisin, a two-day cultural experience activity will begin in Harawan Tribe. The Maori youths will participate in the ascension ceremony and singing activity, integrating in the life of the tribe. Business Undertaker: Clerk Sayun Tosu TEL: 02-8995-3092; 0975-195010
