    Qingye Village

More than 400 years ago, the ancestors of Qingye relocated on a number of occasions before settling down at the site of today’s village. The village was named Qingye in 1976. As you travel along the “mountain highway” (Ping 185 road), when you see an eye-catching arrangement of river stones and a sign with a group of butterflies about to take to the air, you know you already arrive at Qingye Village.

Qingye is a Rukai aborigine tribe. The way they decorate their house tells the stories of the family. Colorful houses line the narrow streets. You may identify the house belongs to a hunting family by its decoration of those hunted animals.

A female artist in the village created a striking butterfly window and a butterfly wall. She also built a butterfly ladder to symbolize the connection between Qingye Elementary School and the village.

    There are ten villages (tribes) in Sandimen Township, Pingtung County, of which nine villages are Paiwan, and only Qingye Village at the northwestern tip of Sandimen Township is Rukai. The Aoba Tribe (AUBA) is a beautiful and joyful community, and it is also the only Rukai myth art village in Taiwan. It has checkerboard streets, neat routes and clean lines. The lanes and lanes are filled with paintings of Rukai mythology, full of rich art. The breath tells the story of ancestors, like an outdoor art gallery. The best thing is the night stargazing activity at the Qingye Community Development Association Plaza. Under the leadership of the stargazing teacher, Mars (Mars opposition), Saturn, Jupiter, Altair, and Vega have been seen at once. I am super excited!

    I knew Qingye Village because of my working relationship. I didn’t expect it to be a tribe with so many tribal stories and aboriginal culture. The villagers are very friendly and worth spending a whole day here to enjoy the baptism of nature and aboriginal culture.
