Located just across the street from Taipei’s famous National Palace Museum, the Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines has one of the most impressive collectionsof artifacts from Taiwan’s indigenous tribes, who are first known to have migrated to the island tens of thousands of years ago. Taiwan’s indigenous tribes occupied the island long before the Han Chinese settlers came from China in the 17th Century. Whilemany people believe Taiwan’s indigenous tribes went on to settle in places like Southeast Asia, as well as the Pacific Islands and as far away as Hawaii and New Zealand, few know where they came from before arriving in Taiwan. This museum spent time consultingwith internationally renowned anthropologists and archaeologists to provide answers, based on extensive scientific research from a large community of scientists.
