 Xiulin Township MapXiulin Township has a population of 15,000-plus, of which more than 90% are Truku people, and Han people are the ethnic minority in the township. Hunting and weaving are among the most important traditional crafts of the Truku people, where the men are constantly learning to hunt until they catch the prey before they are recognized as hunters who can shoulder the village’s responsibilities. Weaving is the woman’s job and the standard by which their feminine abilities and social stature are judged; women with extraordinary weaving skills will be respected in the village and are sought-after mates.
