Taiwanese Folklore And Culture
Folklore is the lore of the common people, denoting the mores and ways of life that a society adheres to and upholds, this includes rites, festivals, religious beliefs, and more.
Taiwan is a modern society formed under the influence of Chinese migrants; the story of their settlement in Taiwan is one of struggles – racial disputes, riots, and natural disasters. Taiwanese culture is developed under these circumstances, forming cultural phenomena specific to Taiwan, such as that of the sea culture, the mixing and creolization of cultures, and more.
