In order to encourage the indigenous people to pursue excellence in their professional fields, the Council of Indigenous Peoples handled the “Professionals Award Plan for Indigenous People” every year, which had been the 19th year so far. In 2019, 1,282 people won awards, with a total award of NT $25.544150. Today (19), the Council held a grand award ceremony for indigenous professionals at Queena Plaza Hotel in Taitung City, and the Chairman Icyang‧Parod of the Council, presented the awards in person to publicly recognize the winners.
According to Icyang, the Chairman of Council, there were five categories of awards for indigenous professionals, including further education, academic monographs, inventions, professional examinations and outstanding sports talents. Among them, the number of awards for “academic monographs” had grown from 8 in 2003 to 44 in 2019, the largest number of awards in this category since the Council held the Award Issuance Plan. It showed that more and more ethnic groups were actively publishing works or special books in domestic and foreign journals, so the number of winners was increasing year by year. Moreover, “further education” was the most awarded case this year, with 677 cases, among which 404 people obtained master’s degree and 223 people graduated from master’s degree. In addition, 38 people had passed the doctoral examination, and 12 people had graduated from the doctoral examination. In the future, there would be more and more higher education talents of Indigenous Peoples, which could be achieved in the near future!
Icyang, the Chairman of the Council, further said that the indigenous sports players were outstanding in the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta megalopolis, winning 4 gold medals, 3 silver medals and 6 bronze medals, with 38 participants winning the medals. For example, Subya (Amis) won the gold medal of the Women’ Taekwondo Contest under 53kg, Ku, Hsiao-Shuang (Bunun) won the gold medal of the Women’ Karate Contest under 50kg, Kuo, Hsing-Chun (Amis) won the gold medal in Women’ Weightlifting Contest under 58kg, Chuang, Ying-Chie (Amis), Chen Chou, Yue-Hung (Puyuman), Lin, Min-Hao (Amis), Wu, Chun-Chie (Amis), Chou, En-Ping (Amis), Chou, Chi-Wei (Amis) and Lin, Sheng-Ju (Amis) won the gold medal in the 500m Light Boat Men’ Dragon Boat Contest.
