However, linguistic research over the past three decades has suggested that Proto-Austronesians may have already developed chiefdoms and social hierarchies and that Taiwan was one of the key sites for the migration of Austronesian speakers. Some scholars thus concluded that the “egalitarian” type of societies among the Austronesian Taiwan must have been the result of Japanese colonialism. Dr. Kun-hui Ku intends to re-think this dichotomy with ethnographic material from Austronesian Taiwan, especially the Paiwan; to distinguish the ideological and practical dimensions of this historical reconstruction; and to examine the viability of the analytical tools which have been widely adopted in the anthropological literature on other Austronesian societies.
