There are nine Aboriginal tribes in Taiwan -- Saisiat, Bunun, Tsou, Rukai,
Paiwan, Atayal, Ami, Puyuma and Tawu, and each of them has different

illustrate ethnic diversity rather than the Aboriginals of Taiwan. I think
our children probably know more about Native Americans than Taiwan's
Aboriginals," Melevlev said.
