A Slice of Indigenous & Local History & CultureWe went on an afternoon where there were no Amis cultural erformances. So instead, we walked over to the Douli Visitor Centre, an air-conditioned indoor centre that provided a good place to understand the culture and economy of the people living in Taitung. There was also a 20-min video screening of a local production in Mandarin, of the lifestyle and culture of the indigenous people. We were told by our local host that the best time of the year to visit this centre and view the performances is from June to September, and especially during the mid-autumn Lantern festival.
Indigineus music performanceNice scenic view of mountain and tree. Air is very fresh. Guest can try bamboo firecracker. Amis artist from young to old would use their instrument to perform mandapop. After performance, the children will go round to ask for free donation.

Closed on FridayWe were excited to go there, but obviously we did not do enough homework so it was closed or rather a off day. Everyday they have preformance at 11 am and (not sure what time at evening but around 2pm guess), but we went of Friday but it was closed. Nonetheless we met a nice Ami lady with her very cute little boy, who should us around, introduce us to the musical instrument and played some for us. They also let us play with the musical instrument. I believe if there is a performance, it would have been a blast.
Nice insight of the Amis culturalThe cultural centre has live performances twice a day, of Amis songs and music by the Amis tribe band. The centre also features Amis traditional long house replica for viewing and to understand the functions of the houses.
