"the 67-year-old Grandpa Mountain Pig is a hunter handed down to the fourth generation of the Leshui tribe. in recent years, he has promoted the hunter's journey with his grandmother, daughter and son-in-law, taking tourists to self-made hunter bags and going deep into the hunting ground to learn about the utilization of Atayal plants. after arriving in Liuliao, there are also activities such as roast mountain pork, sipping millet dew, archery and traditional trap making. "

Although the Leshui tribe, located by the Lanyang River, was called a "forgotten tribe" because of the interruption of traffic in the early years, it has gradually attracted the attention of many tourists in recent years for promoting tribal cultural and ecological tourism. Through the aboriginal affairs of Ilan County, they sought counseling resources from the Aboriginal Association and began to assist tribesmen to transform the life of Atayal traditional hunters into work vacation-style tourism experience, which was well received. Attract parents and children to go into the mountains and forests to learn the wisdom of living with nature.

Twisting thread, sawing bamboo, making their own meal bags early in the morning, tourists arrive in Leshui one after another. After a simple welcome, tourists put on Atayal traditional costumes and headbands, and then put tattoo stickers to symbolize the early tattoo culture. I saw children eager to try, such as acting as Atayal hunters through cosplay rituals!

Then, Grandpa Mountain Pig taught tourists to use both hands and feet, twist cotton thread into solid double strands on their thighs, and experience hand sawing osmanthus bamboo, filling glutinous rice and mountain spring water, and using banana leaves to cover and make homemade bamboo tube rice bags to enter the hunting ground in the afternoon. Then he followed Grandpa Shan Pig on a tribal tour, visiting the characteristic buildings of the Leshui tribe, such as youth clubs, fire houses, watchtowers, and so on, and unveiling this once prosperous and forgotten tribe. how did it become an administrative town in Datong Township in the era of logging in Taiping Mountain, and how, after the flood and the forestry ban, it entered the years of being an isolated island for as long as 20 years?

Authentic Atayal flavor meal, from the five senses began to inject Atayal moving time to noon, the mountain pig grandmother has prepared a full table of flavor meals ── fried mountain pork, scallions and local chicken, shredded meat stir-fried glutinous rice peppers, steamed live fish, asparagus, cart eggplant chop soup and other rich dishes, many of which are collected from non-toxic vegetables planted by grandma mountain pig, delicious but also healthy Replenish your physical strength through this feast from the tip of the tongue to the body and soul, ready to open the prelude to the afternoon hunter's experience.

Walking to the hunting ground, plants that know the Atayal people set off with enough food and drink, and tourists sit in semi-open-air minivans all the way to the nearby hunting ground, following in the footsteps of Grandpa Mountain Pig into the mountains. The seemingly inconspicuous wild plants near the mountain wall have been transformed into daily food or daily necessities through Grandpa Mountain Pig, such as the white and transparent banana heart, which is a life-saving plant used by hunters to quench their thirst in the mountain forest. After twists and turns, the leaves of the great-aunt taro can serve as a natural cup for holding water, and if they are fastened by branches, they will instantly become rain-proof caps. There is also a mountain palm leaf shaft that removes feather leaves, which is full of elastic fiber toughness and can be used as a simple fishing rod. After a while, Grandpa Mountain Pig pulled out a mountain knife and peeled the stem of the grass neatly, revealing the white pith. This is the natural material for making Meilao and grass paper in the early years, and the touch is very close to the texture of Poly dragon!

After learning to shoot archery, making traps, tasting barbecue and millet dew arrived in Liuliao, Grandpa Shanzhu cut the osmanthus bamboo into bamboo sticks, while Grandma Shanzhu strung together the pre-pickled mountain pork and roasted meat on a triangular stove made of stones. while the children swung under the tree, adults were fascinated by the archery experience. Then Grandpa Mountain Pig demonstrated to tourists the principle of making Atayal traditional traps, and used branches to imitate the situation in which mountain pigs stepped on traps by mistake. When the steel wire sprang up instantly, people had to marvel at the design ingenuity of hunters in the past.

With the smoke curling up in the hunting house and the smoky flavor mixed with the greasy aroma of gravy, the skins of mountain pork have been roasted until golden and crisp and full of oil. The meat kebabs pickled with horseradish and scallions are served with DIY's bamboo tube rice in the morning, and the millet dew brewed by Grandma Mountain Pig, the hunter's journey ends a full day with a stop in the satisfied taste buds.
