    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.

When you visit Rinari, remember to take off your shoes before entering someone’s house. This is the uttermost respect you can show to your host. For this reason, Rinari is nicknamed as “the tribe where you must take shoes off.”

    Try to understand the beauty of the place with your heart, learn what you don’t understand, and respect the local life style and treat people the same as people. Truth and beauty are spiritual experience in our eyes~

    Because of the August 8 typhoon, permanent aboriginal settlements were built by relocating villages from the mountainous areas. Aboriginal-style decorations can be seen everywhere. The modern and neatly planned streets and houses make the visitors almost forget the time when their homes were rebuilt after the disaster. recall
