In traditional Amis culture, male headwear is diverse and varies according to the unique characteristics of each tribe. The Lisin Workshop takes great pride in showcasing male headpieces from the Hualien Ruisui Kiwit tribe (the birthplace of the Amis) and the warrior hats used in numerous tribes of Shoufeng Township. These headwear items are artistic creations that preserve the wisdom and creativity of our ancestors but also symbolize the status and responsibilities of men within the tribe.
The headwear from the Hualien Ruisui Kiwit tribe symbolizes the role of a watchtower in safeguarding the community, blending local culture with traditional elements. On the other hand, the warrior hats from Shoufeng Township represent courage and responsibility, worn by male members during their prime years as a significant symbol of identity within the tribe. These male headpieces not only showcase the diversity of Amis culture but also underscore the crucial role that men play in cultural heritage.
