Originally settled down on Lanyang Plain,
the majority of Kavalan people relocated on Huatung Coast
after invaded by non-indigenous peoples
and were often mistakened as Pangcah people.

Kavalan has been officially recognized by the government
as the members of 11th indigenous community
but for Kavalan people,
they have not found their own name.


Because of Ketagalan Boulevard,
most Taiwanese are no stranger to the name, Kavalan.
Distributed in Tamsui, Taipei, and Keelung, Kavalan people,
however, due to long history of settlement and sinofication,
have faced the challenges to preserve and pass down its culture.
