Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines

  • Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines

Establishment Purpose

  • The Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines was opened on June 9, 1994 as Taiwan’s first private museum specializing in indigenous artefacts. Apart from collection and preservation of indigenous artefacts, the museum promotes indigenous cultures through diversified educational activities. In the museum, the rich material cultures of Taiwan indigenous peoples are faithfully displayed through both permanent and special exhibitions. In addition, to respect the right to own culture interpretation of indigenous peoples, the museum organizes the indigenous-village themed special exhibition every year. By displaying the culture of one indigenous group each time, the museum plans the contents with the group to highlight the group’s subjectivity and provides them with a place to show their culture, making the museum a channel and forum for demonstrating cultural pluralism.

Department Introduction

Adhering to the spirit of “love our land; cherish our cultures, ” founder Ching-Fu Lin founded the “Nai-Weng Lin Foundation for Education & Culture” in 1985 in the name of Mr. Nai-Weng Lin, founder of Shung Ye Group, to plan the Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines and donated his personal collection of indigenous artefacts over the past 20 years to embody the spirit: Take from society, Give back to society.
