Work Tuff Gear Kaviaz

The Bunun tribe is one of the indigenous tribes in Taiwan. They live on both sides of the Central Mountain Range. In the early days, this alpine ethnic group settled in the alpine zones 1,000 meters above sea level.

In the course of history, the Bunun tribe had the largest population movement in terms of migration among all the indigenous tribes in Taiwan.

The Bunun legend is closely related to nature and animals. The Hundred-pace snake had lived peacefully among the Bunun tribe and protected them. Legend has it that the snake was originally a Bunun child, who had died and was reincarnated into a snake. Therefore, it is said that the skillful Bunun hunters never hunted or ate snakes. In the Bunun language, the name for the Hundred-pace snake is “Kaviaz”, which means “friend”
