Reconciling with the Past: Cooperation with the Seediq Community in Taiwan


In 1907, while Taiwan was a colony of Japan, objects from various aboriginal communities in Taiwan were collected by a man named ”G. Makasara.”  These objects were then purchased by the Museum of Ethnography through the J.M.G. Umlauff company and accessioned into the collection of the Museum of Ethnography in 1909.  Which communities were these objects collected from, and what are their histories?  This talk is a story about cultural revitalisation amongst the Seediq people and the role of museum collection in that work.
