Looking for the Salt

Audio Tracks 

In 1999, the Indigenous Culture Club at the National Taiwan University held a series of annual ceremony activities as a tribute to traditional indigenous rituals. So unfamiliar with their native languages and cultures, however, the student organisers found themselves in an awkward position that brought them into conflict with the school administration. Where would they find the 'salt', an in-depth understanding of their cultural identities and backgrounds?
