The theme of this year’s poster design competition is Greater Love: The Beauty in the Indigenous. Within the historical context of Taiwan’s indigenous peoples, in addition to interactions among indigenous groups, every era has brought contact with other ethnic groups in Taiwan and from abroad. These exchanges have influenced the diverse and modern indigenous culture to some degree. An example is the Paiwan tribe’s legend of the peacock prince and its associated glass beads, obtained through exchanges with peoples from other countries, which have become family heirlooms. In addition, the Saisiyat people remember the ta’ay people during a ceremony known as Pasta’ay. Although such legends, formed through contact with outside groups, cannot be verified, they remain an important part of oral histories which continue to be passed down.
Greater Love responds to the concept of mutual respect among all cultures. It also refers to the love of indigenous communities and groups in the mountains and along the coast. Extending from these connotations of Greater Love, The Beauty in the Indigenous represents the wish that everyone jointly thinks about what indigenous culture, no matter now or in the future, looks like. Is it possible to preserve it in its original form? It also refers to “harmony.” It is hoped that all ethnic groups in Taiwan cooperate with and accept one another, as well as practice empathy. This museum’s establishment was based on the concept of everyone working together to protect Taiwan’s culture.
With the theme of Greater Love: The Beauty in the Indigenous, participants are expected to gain a better understanding of Taiwan’s indigenous culture during the creative process. Within their beautifully designed works, it is hoped that they incorporate their life experience and thinking on how to achieve a wonderful future together.
