【Misatalo'an Together in Qimei – An In-Depth Experience of Tribal Life】
Misatalo'an means "building a workers' dormitory" in the Amis language. In this group of East Coast tribal working holiday from May 27 to May 29, 2023, the participating volunteers will be guided by the tribesmen through learning about the core spirit of Qimei Tribe's hunter culture. They will go into the mountains to learn all necessary knowledge, including picking wild vegetables, making traps, and planting saplings. They will also follow the tribesmen to clear the land, construct hunting lodges, and start a campfire to cook on site. The night tour on the hunting trail is also to be looked forward to. Through first-hand experiences, participants will appreciate the tribe's profound respect for nature. In addition, you can follow the tribesmen for an in-depth tour of the tribe, such as catching shrimps in Xiuguluan River and tasting the unique stone hot pot. You can experience the tribal lifestyle by learning about herbs from the ina (tribal mom) and trying the herbal foot bath.
