Exploring Taiwanese Indigeneity through Film
6:00 pm
Online via Zoom
Sponsored by:
Asian Studies Center along with World History Center and Screenshot:Asia

Join us for this K-12 workshop which will use excerpts from Umin Boya’s film Kano, based on a true story depicting the multi-ethnic Kano baseball team from Japanese-era Taiwan, to explore the complex relationships of Taiwan’s past and present.

The richness and diversity of Taiwan’s history is marked by its complex interactions and relations among indigenous peoples, waves of immigrants from Mainland China, and colonizers from both the West and East. The workshop will provide educators with content and resources that can readily be incorporated in the classroom in order to explore Taiwan and topics related to its fascinating history.
