The Feather Headdress of Ceroh

織羅之羽Ciopihay

According to Indigenous elders, the process of standing up for tests to win the qualification to wear the feather headdress is a symbol of becoming a man (Tamdaw) for the Pangcah people of Taiwan. The process of qualification has changed over time in recent days due to the lost of traditional environment and lifestyle.

The scars made by colonization and lost of lands and power still hurt the heart of Pangcah people. This film reveals the perspective of three generations of Pangcah people as a way to share their stories and as a mean to examine this issue that Pangcah people face in this modern time.
