Indigenous people who could not fit into the mainstream society once lost their identity, languages and cultures. However, indigenous youths now reclaim their ethnic identity and a sense of belonging through music, a medium which removes language barrier. And consequently they have created their harmony and unison in the community.
We use our voice to show the public our importance and songs to raise people’s awareness of our circumstances. When we are on the stage, the charming power of our voice is our strongest weapon. Its influence will reach every corner, become a part of people’s life and convey our stories.
Note: “pasevalit: ulja lemangdasun ta uljingav,”means “passing the baton: may you hear my voice” in Paiwan language.
