Metiria Turei on Te Urewera-Tūhoe Bill

Just a few weeks ago it was the anniversary of the Tūhoe raids, which was just the most recent example of where the Crown went into Tūhoe territory, used the full force of the State against whānau, kuia, kaumātua, and tamariki, and used yet again the same justifications that have been used for 150 years for the exercise and abuse of that power. May Tūhoe not have to wait a century for an apology for that process—for that colonial invasion of Tūhoe lands.

找回家的路─泰雅女孩談部落的流離與重返

找回家的路,對一個都市原住民來說,需要極大的勇氣和極長的時間,還不見得能達成。我叫Yagu Yuraw,擁有一個原住民的名字,是我回家的第一步。 (原文) 

泰雅尋根,家不在記憶能及處

我是南澳泰雅族人,卻在羅東小鎮長大。父母親為了使我能在漢人社會中生存及競爭,在我幼稚園時便舉家從南澳遷出,讓我在漢文化的教育體制下成長。我說得一口標準的漢語,滿腦子漢族的思考模式;知道自己是原住民,但從未意識到原民文化的重要性。直到大學時代認識一群原住民朋友,我才展開一連串追尋認同的過程。

小時候一直以為,我的「老家」在南澳大馬路邊;我的「部落」則在靠山近些的金岳村。雖然我從未住過金岳,不過過年過節一定會到金岳拜訪親戚,腦海中還有許多在那裡玩耍的記憶。長大才曉得,原來爺爺、奶奶和金岳族人們真正的「根」,竟然在32公里外南澳山區,一個已經不存在一般地圖上的部落──流興(Ryohen)。
