    Being sent into the wilderness is a process of exploring the unknown and finding courage.
    It starts from the land and from the tribe. Children must let go of electronics and the dazzling sound and video effects in games and animations so that they can explore the environment different from the city. In unfamiliar situations, they must explore and take on challenges, and learn to overcome fear and cope with danger. In this process, from experiencing the primitive tribal life, children will learn to be in and with nature, and understand the value of ecology and environmental protection, from which they will broaden their world view.

    The Amis Kakeng Musical Group at the Amis Folk Center in Duli uses the unique traditional percussion instrument, Kakeng—an instrument used to announce the great news at weddings when the husband will join the Amis woman's family and bear the family name. Combined with singing, their inspiring performances have made a name internationally. The Amis Folk Center is chosen as the base for cultural development, training, and performances.
