Starting in my freshman year of high school, I have traversed the southeast coast of Taiwan, home to a majority of our 16 indigenous tribes.
Across Taitung, I interviewed indigenous individuals and documented their unknown stories to honor their lives in an age where indigenous heritage is rapidly vanishing.
3 and a half years later, I have dedicated up to 300+ hours conducting interviews, filming, editing, researching, and supporting indigenous empowerment in the media.
I am humbled by the lives these individuals lead and the communities they have built. Through film journalism, I hope to continue to disrupt harmful indigenous narratives in the media and diversify representation for marginalized communities.
