It goes on:[quote]The neighborhood residents of Hsinchu are ancestors from Guangdung. They moved here from other places, and make a living by laboring. They are diligent and hard working for many years so that they are doing better and better than the natives. Up to this day, these 2 races get along with each other very well without any discrimination.[/quote]
It’s the Hakkas that are getting called diligent and hard working, not the aborigines - and then they say there is no discrimination! Ha! I am really astonished to see this kind of shit on an ROC government web site.
The “History” tab in the Chinese version is not clickable, so I guess the content may have been removed due to protests, but they neglected to remove the English version.
Another page on the Forestry web site (click on “Introduction”) says:[quote]Residents in the neighborhood are mainly Taiya tribe and Saisiat tribe, but there is no residents within this area.[/quote]
Huh? Oh, the Chinese is:[quote]附近居民以泰雅族及賽夏族為主，區內目前無居民。[/quote]
To be clear, the English should be :[quote]Nearby residents belong mainly to the Taiya and Saisiat tribes, but there are at present no residents within the forest recreation area.[/quote]
There is an organisation that campaigns for aboriginal rights at www.watahope.org.tw. The web site is entirely in Chinese.
