Aborigines of Taiwan: The Puyuma: From Headhunting to the Modern World
Foyalty 108

Aborigines of Taiwan: The Puyuma: From Headhunting to the Modern World (Paperback)

£35.99
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

Based on extensive field research over a period of twenty years, this is the first comprehensive study of the Puyuma people of Taiwan. The Puyuma belong to the Austronesian peoples, which today number less than 370,000. In Taiwan, they are the least known of the aboriginal groups, numbering only 6000, and inhabiting the Southeastern province of Taitung. The study looks at the historical changes in the status and definition of these people in relation to the central state, the criteria by which people determine their own ethnic identity, and the evolution of that identity through history. The increasing awareness in the West of the importance of ethnic relations makes this an especially timely book.
