English Abstract

Exploration, argumentation, and construction of Indigenous Traditional Knowledge System have in recent years become a trend for multi-discipline studies in Taiwan academia. This paper investigates Indigenous Culture Revitalization Movements generated in the early 1980s, with a focus on the literature practice by the authors' in Indigenous Movement Generation, the content of their literary writings, and the development of their creation positions regarding to the construction of Indigenous Traditional Knowledge System. This paper also explores the process of the indigenous authors' transformation towards their tribal people and history through publication and circulation of periodicals, literature writings, and culture discussions, in order to penetrate or proliferate the indigenous peoples' participation in public issues. Meanwhile, most of the authors return to the traditional public domains by residing at their own tribal villages to learn the ways of living with respect to life rituals and tribes. Through participation in both social and tribal public domains, the authors in Indigenous Movement Generation not only extend the society's understandings on indigenous literature, but also enrich the contents of their writing materials, so that the integral capacity of Taiwanese Literature is redefined, and the horizons for construction of Indigenous Traditional Knowledge System are expanded.
