當上帝的部落遇到國家
關於部落格
傳統上對我們而言部落即是國家,
現在的這一個不怎麼確定是國家的國家
對我們而言其實也只是部落,
是很多部落合成的大部落,
當國家遇到部落的時候,
國家卻想要凌駕於部落之上,
然而當上帝的部落遇到國家的時候.............
聽啊!在山的那一邊傳來了高亢的凱旋歌!

曾參訪司馬庫斯部落的國際友人來信聲援

The traditional rights of Native communities such as the Tayal in Smangus over their ancestral lands - and the biological diversity within those ancestral lands - are internationally recognized by academics and agencies familiar with indigenous history, culture, and law.
(原住民族群如在司馬庫斯的泰雅族對祖先傳下來的土地所擁有的權利,以及在這塊土地上居住的其他生物,在國際間,是被許多熟悉原住民歷史文化和法律等相關領域的學術界與單位所承認的。)

The survival of an indigenous community such as the Tayal is deeply connected with their ancestral lands: to deny, or to undermine their biocultural heritage is a very short-sighted policy. A wiser policy would recognize and protect aboriginal cultural groups -including the Tayal - because Native cultural groups are what make the Hsinchu Forest District a unique and culturally rich region.
(如泰雅一般的原住民族群,對於祖先所傳下來的土地,有相當深厚的感情。否認或是低估這些生命文化遺產是非常短視近利的政策。一個明智的政策應該承認並保護原住民文化群體,包含泰雅族,因為新竹森林園區是因為這些原住民而成為非常獨特且文化深厚的地區。)

When I visited Taiwan in December 2006, and traveled to the Hsinchu forest, I was greatly impressed with the sophistication of the cultural and ecological tourism programs offered by the Tayal/Smangus communities, and by other aboriginal groups in the district. It gives me great sorrow to hear that these programs are threatened by the Taiwanese governments.
(我曾於2006十二月來台時參訪過新竹縣的森林,當時我對於司馬庫斯的泰雅族和其他原住民族群所擁有之精緻的文化和生態旅遊規劃有極佳的印象。得知這些計畫正受到台灣政府威脅,令我非常難過。)

A well-educated and just Taiwanese government would support the Tayal and their traditional rights, in order to ensure the future political, social, cultural, and economic sustainability and prosperity of the Hsinchu Forest Region. Instead of fighting over one tree, let us all cooperate to protect the trees, the forest, and - most especially - the aboriginal peoples whose lives are so deeply connected with the forest.
(像台灣一般高知識且公正的政府,應該支持泰雅族人與其保有習俗的權利,以祈保護新竹森林地區未來政治,文化,經濟的有續發展和未來。最特別的是,這些居住在司馬庫斯的原住民和這些森林有非常深厚的感情。請讓我們一起合作來保護樹木與森林,而不要為了一棵樹而起衝突。)
