THE BUNUN PEOPLE OF TAIWAN

THE BUNUN PEOPLE OF TAIWAN

The Bunun are a group of people indigenous to Taiwan. Their tribe is well-known for vocal traditions and song. I spent a year in Taiwan, teaching English. Any moment I had the opportunity to escape city life and head to the hills, I took it. Indigenous culture, art and music stirs a curiosity within me. During my year in Taiwan, I learned about these cultures and traditions.

The Bunun tribe are the fourth largest aboriginal tribe in Taiwan. They are well known for their eight-part polyphonic singing, and speak Bunun.

I CHING

I CHING

I've been listening to an I Ching podcast (a form of ancient Chinese text) which took me back to my experience of visiting an I Ching master in a Taiwanese temple. Here are some wholesome thoughts for the day.

  • Love yourself first to create the space to love others and for others to love you

  • Care for your soul - the light and the dark

  • Forgive yourself and embrace your shadow - for this will resolve the fears and doubts that have been the obstacles to your desires and dreams
