"Modernization and acculturation have greatly transformed Taiwan indigenous people during recent fifty years. Facing dramatic challenges of the dissolution of the social-economical structure and the loss of traditional culture, a lot of indigenous people immigrated to urban areas in order to obtain a better education and work opportunity. Having been suffering from the stigmatized identity and uneven competition in the mainstream society, a group of indigenous cultural workers returned home to regenerate their tribal tradition and to search for alternative way of life. On the one hand, they learn traditional skills for producing handcrafts such as pottery, sculpture and beads, and then combine the skills with modern ones in the making of modern artworks. On the other hand, they play the roles of indigenous cultural representatives and mediators to struggle with those of mainstream culture. In doing so, they create a new way of life and status in their home communities. The emerging movement has been termed by scholars as "the second wave of Taiwan indigenous movement". Emphasized on the struggle of cultural domain, its focus has been shifted from the formerly political and social aspects to the cultural identity in a new conjuncture."
