  • South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Taiwan’s indigenous tribal hunters hope court can protect their traditions” – below is their description.

    An indigenous community in Taiwan hopes a ruling by the island’s constitutional court will help protect and preserve their hunting traditions. The top court, also known as the Council of Grand Justices, was set to hear a case on May 7, 2021, on whether current hunting limitations placed on the island’s indigenous tribes are discriminatory and unconstitutional. Many of Taiwan’s aboriginal people consider hunting to be not only about survival, but also an essential part of their culture.

    Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

    The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
