About the Shung Ye Museum
The Shung Ye Museum of Formosan Aborigines celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. It is dedicated to promoting mutual understanding between different ethnic groups through careful research, preservation and explanation of the essence of Aboriginal cultures. Achievement of these aims of mutual respect and appreciation will help to create a harmonious and gentle society.
Ayi-yanga, in the Paiwan language, means "missing very much" with a connotation of greeting, yearning and sorrow. This work is a trail to find the path for traditional folk songs as well as a pilgrimage of searching for both the past and the future. With the collection of essences from traditional culture, it re-interprets traditional folk songs from both Paiwan and Bunun Tribes, rearranged ancient songs, and brand-new compositions.
Underhill parking garge (paid public parking) is situated 2 blocks from the museum at the corner of College Ave and Channing Way.
