(Click the image to view at full size)

Indigenous cultures make Taiwan and Canada unique. Taiwan has sixteen officially recognized tribes, and, like Canada, is engaged in ongoing public and community discussions about languages, land rights, self-determination, history, and reconciliation. How is indigenous life being represented and experienced by artists in Taiwan today? What commonalities of history, experience, or imagination might be found between Indigenous people of Taiwan and First Nations of Canada? This fall, join us for the first event of its kind in Canada: a series of conversations with writers and filmmakers who have been at the forefront of sharing Indigenous Taiwan with the world.

Indigenous Taiwan, Transpacific Connections
A virtual speaker series, October-November 2021
Conducted in English and Chinese
Hosted by the Department of Asian Studies, University of British Columbia
Sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Republic of China

原住民文化是台灣和加拿大獨特的文化。台灣共有十六個官方承認的部落,並且與加拿大一樣,正在進行關於語言、土地權利、民族自決、歷史與和解的公開討論。當代的台灣藝術家們如何感受和表現原住民生活?台灣與加拿大原住民在歷史、經歷和文學想像上有哪些共同點?今年秋天,加入我們在加拿大舉辦的第一場以此為主題的活動:我們將與四位享譽國際的台灣作家和電影導演展開一系列對話,他們的作品始終致力於向全世界講述台灣原住民的故事。
