Produced and Edited for Thomson Reuters Foundation


Indigenous people make up 2% of Taiwan's 23 million people, who were evicted from their land and banned from speaking their own languages. This film of the Thomson Reuters Foundation follows two indigenous communities to show how they are breaking the cycle of historical trauma, and reconnecting with their land and culture.
