Light Up My Life

Dakanuwa is at the most upstream part of the Nanzuxien Stream and it is one of the farthest tribes in the remote mountain. After leaving the highway and crossing a bridge which was washed away easily, we should spend two or three hours to get there. This is Arbuwu’s hometown. Before she was ten, there was no electricity, She said while she was young, she could not imagine what electricity was and the simple life did not need anything more. Arbuwu hopes that the reconstruction after the disaster will be faster and Kanakanavu will be restored and become an independent tribe….. Arbuwu knows that there are a lot of difficulties before each wish but she never gives up her wishes and always does her best.
