Love, Net Fishing, Sharing: Ceroh Community Mini Tour
In the southern part of Hualien County is a small community called Ceroh in the indigenous Amis language (or Zhiluo in Chinese). The people of this community tell of an ancient legend of the indigenous Amis tribe - about a weaver and the sun.
Long, long ago, in the skies above the community hung ten fireballs. This greatly impacted on the people. Many brave warriors lost their lives trying to destroy these fireballs, leaving many women in the community to grieve. Then, one warrior used his skill at weaving nets to eliminate seven of the fireballs. He ultimately subdued the remaining three. He allowed one to become the sun and another the moon. The last one broke itself into small pieces forming the stars. Such a beautiful story is representative of the charm of the Ceroh Community.
