We often forget that Taiwan is an island surrounded by ocean. Our island ancestors had embarked on journeys sailing away, migrating for thousands of years spreading the seeds of oceanic culture all around into the Pan Pacific Oceania Community. Last hundreds of years, colonists crossed the sea and brought their cultures with them to this region, yet it is the fluidity, elasticity, and protection of the sea that made Taiwan into such a culturally diversified and symbiotic island. Even after drifting for thousands of years, upon meeting, the similarity in languages and habitual usages brings forth a sense of affinity. From a bird’s eye view, the islands are seemingly set apart by the sea, but from a fish’s eye view, islands are tightly connected.
