    Rinari Tribe

Linali Village can be found in Majia Township of Pingtung. The community is surrounded by forests and mountains and offers a great view of the picturesque Pingbei Plain.

The community’s name implies the idea of people walking shoulder-to-shoulder in the same direction. It was selected as the relocation destination for indigenous tribes from Dashe Village of Sandimen Township, Majia Village of Majia Township, and Haocha Village of Wutai Township after the devastation caused by Typhoon Morakot in 2009. Thanks to the government and World Vision International, which worked together to offer permanent housing, the indigenous rebuilt their homeland in Linali Village and started a new life together.

Wandering on the tribal ground, visitors might notice churches sitting at the four corners of the community, each boasting a unique exterior design. The cluster of churches is a major feature of the community, and they reflect the indigenous people’s devotion. If visitors go on to explore the community, they will see indigenous craftworks dotting around the tribal ground. There are lily-themed arts that imply rarity and Deinagkistrodon totems that symbolize the origin of the indigenous culture.

The Evergreen Lily Elementary School in the village features a lively design and has many special installations on its corridors, such as an adaptable miniature labyrinth, an outdoor piano room, and many other creative features that are waiting to be discovered by tourists.

Visitors are recommended to spend over half a day in the village, visiting the tribal shopping street, the Quinoa Museum, tribal art studios, the visitor center, and Lily Elementary School. They can even book a tour from the community development association.

    The Taiwanese version of Gasshang Village has some tribal features on the exterior of its buildings. There were not many tourists visiting that day. It was very quiet but it also indicated that the itinerary was monotonous 🤣🤣 But it was just to walk around and let go, to taste the culture of the aboriginal people, for the time being Get out of the hustle and bustle of the city! I heard that there is no homestay here, but it adopts the method of hosting families. Those who are interested may wish to take a look.

    Be sure to go to the visitor center to learn about the tribe first, and you can also visit the wedding costumes of the nobles, and there are commentators to visit. Style carvings and totems can be seen in various tribes. There are also special snacks.

    Just saw this article yesterday Art creation in front square of Linali Visitor Center Winner of "2021 MUSE Design Awards" Design Competition Landscape Design Category Subproject Silver Award Now that you are in Pingtung, of course you can't miss it. If the weather is not really too hot, there are many buildings in the community that are worth slowly appreciating
