In the history of Kaluluan, different groups of indigenous people, like Sakizaya, Kavalan, Pangcha, and Bunun, moved here in different period of time. Some of them crossed the mountains to come, and the others fought against the heavy seas to land. Finally, they all met at this place called "Kaluluan" and lived together peacefully from then on.
If the main purpose of "The Memories of the Old Trail" is to take us to figure out the old trail which had been lost for fifty years, this activity is to let us know the attitude that indigenous people live between mountains and the sea.
We will pass through the old tribe of Pangcha when we walk along the river to fond the source. Sail from the seashore of the tribe and row to the ocean. Cook what we pick from the Intertidal zone in a traditional way.

Sail to the ocean
- Sail on the sea with the mountain behind you
Depart from the seashore, sail to the ocean. Only when you do row can you really understand how hard is to live on the ocean.
It is possible to capsize when you row a canoe in the sea. But it doesn't matter if you don't have any experiences about rowing canoes. Coaches will teach you from basic skills and secure your safety.
Live on the ocean
Rowing for a while, we will land on intertidal zone. Ina will lead us to pick some creatures hiding in the intertidal zone and then we cook what we've picked in a traditional way. Let's picnic beside the sea.
