What you'll do

Please join us for a small gathering to celebrate Taiwanese and Pacific Island cultures. Enjoy Ukulele music and the inspiring story of BulauBulau Village for bringing aboriginal culture beyond museums and back to everyday life.

Studies suggest that Polynesians may have originated from Taiwan thousands of years ago. The adventurous journey by Taiwan aborigines passed through the Philippines and reached islands such as Fiji, Solomon Islands, New Zealand, and possibly Hawaii, Easter Island and Madagascar.

This year’s event will feature Kwali Wilang from BulauBulau Village, a new aboriginal village established in 2004 in Yilan, Taiwan. The Atayal village has not only enabled sustainable living but also made aboriginal tradition a living culture again. We will talk to Kwali Wilang thru video chat to understand how a project that started with a simple idea of living in the mountains blossomed into a powerful testament that aboriginal culture can stay relevant and enrich our lives in the 21st century.

We will also be joined by Ukulele San Jose who will present ukulele music from Taiwan, New Zealand, Hawaii, Tahiti and the Philippines. So put on a Hawaiian shirt, Taiwan aboriginal costume or facial tattoo -- and come enjoy live music. Appetizers will be provided.
