Since it was first staged in 2010, the Taipei Naruwan Cultural Festival has become one of northern Taiwan’s most well-known festivals of indigenous culture. Over the past eight years, it has featured the cultures of the Rukai, Seediq, Puyuma, Amis, Atayal, Paiwan, Taroko, and Bunun tribes.
By letting indigenous peoples living in the city unite their tribal consciousness and conduct cultural exchange to help strengthen their identity, the festival has turned Taipei into a more diverse and friendly capital.
