This is amazing! Like the Maoris, we Filipinos, also trace our ancestry from the indigenous tribes of Taiwan. The similarities of the physical looks and the languages are striking. In Tagalog (Pilipino) we say "tainga" for "ear" ("talinga" in Amis), "tae" for "poop" ("taki" in Amis), "taga-" for "from.../origin" ("taki" in Amis)... The old people (mostly in the countryside) also chew beetlenut. Cool. Thanks for sharing.

Now I know why I am mistaken as Maori & why on holidays in Hawaii all the locals thought I was local Hawaii boy. I liked it but didn't think anything of it.
My mum's maiden name is Aitken. She is a pakeha with fair skin & reddish hair, Scottish ancestry & not good in the sun.
My dad's family name is Shen. All his ancestors are mainland China (mandarin). He was born in Beijing, went to HK & finally boarding school in Christchurch after WWII.
Good Doco, well done all involved.

dg - Taiwanese natives come from the Indonesian region and the islands around it, according to Lin Ma Lee (think that's how you spell it) 80+% of Taiwanese have Indonesian region blood =)

@Nicole...

I know this is a bit late, but it looks like this is the full version. It's just been divided into 4 parts... the links to the other parts are located to the right of the video.

Interesting doco - it leaves me wondering where these Aboriginals of Taiwan came from before settling Taiwan?
