阿美族Amis / Siki Sufin


An important Amis artist, Siki Sufin, is widely known for his "Feather" series. In the 80s and 90s, like other indigenous peoples, Siki left his hometown for education and jobs in cities.

Influenced by the waves of indigenous social movements around 1995, Siki was compelled by the idea of understanding his hometown. Thus, he started to create arts in his hometown in the hope of knowing his land better. Under the guidance of Rahic Talif, an influential artist from the East Coast, Siki had his first individual exhibition when he was about 30 years old. He was learning by doing and through which he constantly explored his style and ideas for arts. A majority of his early artworks focus on Dulan, veterans, and legends. Later, such themes have shifted. In 2001, Siki befriended Adaw Palaf Langasan, a performance artist from Tafalong and both co-founded the Du-Lan Mountain Theater, which enables Siki to explore performing arts and he was devoted to the Theater in these three years. Besides, he is teaching in an indigenous studies program and hopes young people can return to their hometown.
