Taichung Aboriginal Culture Festival-2010

Feathered

Working the Grill

The Line Dance

Taiwan’s aboriginal tribes celebrate their new year in the summer after the harvest of millet. These photos were from the Taichung event. The colors of some of the traditional costumes, particularly of the Amis are so vivid. Very similar color scheme to Mexico and Central America’s Mayans. The Austronesian aborigines are supposed to have come from the Asian mainland to Taiwan and then many scattered all over the Pacific from Hawaii to New Zealand. You can view the rest of this set here as a slide show.

A Small Sip

This culminated a full day of photography for me. In the morning I was at the Taichung Aboriginal Cultural Fair where I met up with fellow walker from this event-David Reid. I went home and rested and took my son Kevin to the Sogo Dept. store where fellow photographers met to start the Scott Kelby WorldWide Photo Walk 2010 (7/24). This year over 1,000 sites with over 30,000 photographers(including our own Todd in Nantou). For a slide show of all my shots from the walk click here.
