Name or title of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome:
Jianshi: The Project on the Bilingual Textualization and Integration of Local Revitalization of Lmuhuw Resources for the Atayal Experimental Education in Jianshi

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

This Project is devoted to the preservation of the Atayal oral culture in Jianshi. It supports the indigenous experimental education in Hsinchu County by editing bilingual texts and filming documentaries. Also, it puts into practice sustainable tourism strategies, integrates the parties of interest, and develops local revitalization of the region at the upper stream of Touqian River—with “ethnic features” and “Atayal wisdom” through the green mini trip to Jianshi project, young entrepreneur incubation and gathering of eco-friendly farmers. The project team collects indigenous oral culture under scientific approaches, including tribal culture and history, text translation, and cultural preservation. By working together, the team supports the educational movements at ethnic experimental schools and presents the schools’ dominance in the cultural construction of local revitalization. As of March 15, 2021, the team had collected 40 ancient songs and held “Joint Exhibition by Siki inlungan nya, a Strategic Alliance of Five Experimental Schools in Jianshi” in December 2020. Besides, the team developed and improved the “Lmuhuw Bilingual Text Translation Preservation Service System,” extracting deep cultural elements with originality from the system. The team also edited three documentaries regarding experimental education and how Lmuhuw integrated into the landscape; produced Jianshi guide training kit; imported courses for a large class for three times; went on field trips to the co-construction of township office and experimental schools for six times; held field trips for university faculty twice; held field trips for experts and scholars twice; gave ten lectures; composed nearly ten journal papers and essays. Step by step, the team establishes a tribal history of local subjectivity to serve as the resources for “the integration of cultural revival into the local revitalization service system.”
The team held a green mini trip to Jianshi three times, forming feature modules by blending Lmuhuw resources and Atayal culture into the trip and connecting local humanities and ecological values. In the trip, the team develops discourse on eco-friendly agriculture, enhances produce value, satisfies the consumer’s need for healthy vegetables, and promotes land justice, sustainability of the environment, and mutual benefit of urban and rural areas in the overall region. Since March 12, 2021, the team has worked with Matuy Cultural Health Station for the young and the elderly’s education of Atayal tradition, improving the interchange and conversation between different generations, reinforcing the cohesiveness of the tribe, and helping the tribe promote local revitalization on their own with Atayal culture as their venture capital.
