    Qingye Village

Qingye Tribe is a beautiful Lukai community on Pingtung County Highway No. 185. Its entrance is decorated with river rocks and images of butterflies, which also serve as the border of the tribe.

It is said that the tribe had been moving around four centuries ago before finally settling down at the current location in 1940. The village was transformed thanks to the young people of the tribe, who were inspired by their ancestors’ stories and painted them on the walls of their houses, creating a colorful indigenous community. Among the young was a female artist who built a butterfly-shaped window and painted a butterfly wall, drawing much attention. The butterfly theme even extends into Qingye Elementary School, which features a butterfly staircase, serving as its connection with the broader tribe. Wandering around in Qingye Tribe is similar to visiting an outdoor museum, in which every household tells their stories through art painted on fences.

Visitors are recommended to spend two to three hours exploring the tribal ground. They can even hire tour guides from the local community development association to know more about the tribe and appreciate its beauty.

    Walking in the tribal alleys is like visiting an art gallery. It is a very relaxing tribe.

    I got to know Qingye Village because of work. I didn’t expect it to be a place with so many tribal stories and aboriginal culture. The villagers are very friendly. It’s worth spending a whole day here to enjoy the baptism of nature and aboriginal culture.

    The extremely beautiful and well-deserved Rukai Mythology Art Village, combined with local agricultural products and aboriginal creations, is worth arranging a trip here!

    There are ten villages (tribes) in Sandimen Township, Pingtung County, nine of them belong to the Paiwan tribe, and only Qingye Village, located at the northwest end of Sandimen Township, belongs to the Rukai tribe. Aoba Tribe (AUBA) is a beautiful and joyful community. It is also the only Rukai Mythology Art Village in Taiwan. The chessboard-like streets and neat routes are neat and neat. The alleys are full of Rukai mythological paintings, full of strong art. Breath, telling the story of the ancestors, like an outdoor art gallery. The best thing is the night stargazing activity at the Green Leaf Community Development Association Square. Under the leadership of the stargazing teacher, I saw Mars (Mars opposition), Saturn, Jupiter, Altair, and Vega all at once. I was super excited!
