       The History Hall", developed by Ruba Ruba the village matriarch, has been restored and reopened after a truck veered off a wet mountain road into the building. Some items were lost, but a considerable collection of pottery, clothing, utensils, wood sculpture and slate carvings remains to shed light on the daily life of traditional aboriginal peoples. At seventy-plus years, Ruba Ruba enjoys a unique history herself. Born a Paiwan, she married into a Rukai family and overcame insurmountable odds in her struggle to fit in. She continues to weave grass mats and baskets and welcomes individuals from all walks of life who would like to learn about aboriginal culture. Visitors are advised to call ahead. Hours are flexible and can be adjusted to accommodate individuals and groups. As a "Living Treasure" of southern Taiwan, Ruba Ruba embodies the best of the mountain spirit. Incidentally, her family heirlooms form the genesis of the Shung Ye Aboriginal Museum in Taipei. By Karen Schmitt
