Icyang Parod, Chairman of the Council, said that this year, in cooperation with Taiwan Railways Administration and MOIC, the Council copied the prize-winning works of 16 children in the 12th National Indigenous Children’ Painting Competition on the Taroko Express. The images signified the hardships of the indigenous movement with fairy tales, and connected the connotation of “sacrifice” and “inheritance”, thereby strengthening the concept of “August 1st - Day of Indigenous Peoples”.
