原民會施政成果專刊以英文出版 融合各族語言走入國際

原住民族委員會繼109年6月出版「原住民族施政成果專刊2016-2020(中文版)」後,接續出版其英文版「OPitiri’an to Heci^ no Nitayalan no Yin-cu-min-cu/ Indigenous Peoples Policy Achievements 2016-2020 Special Issue」,是原民會第1本以原住民族文字與英文為書名的雙語專刊。書中盤點過去4年原民會所推動的20項重要施政成果及其歷程,更重要的是本刊以各族族語呈現各篇名,讓國際讀者可以看見臺灣原住民族文字豐富多元外,也能落實原住民族語言之保存及文化傳承,實踐2017年通過《原住民族語言發展法》的規定。

其中書篇「相隔十年‧南島民族論壇重新啟航」,提到南島文化為原民會推展國際交流之重要基礎,原民會於2008年4月8日在帛琉設立南島民族論壇常設組織;歷經政黨輪替及外交策略停止運作10年之後,終於在2018年8月1日重啟南島民族論壇。2019年3月19日行政院核定原民會所提報的「南島民族論壇六年計畫(109年-114年)」,預算經費為7億3,978萬元。今(2020)年11月23日「南島民族論壇執行委員會議」在圓山大飯店舉辦,計有14國駐臺使節代表出席,共同討論南島區域原住民族國際事務之合作及推展。

臺灣原住民族政策發展的腳步,即便放眼國際,也絲毫不遜色。因此,為了讓國際社會瞭解臺灣原住民族政策之現況與成果,本刊將分享予南島民族論壇會員、往來密切國家之駐臺大使館、代表處,以及我國相關駐外單位,以達相互政策交流之效。

原民會期盼傳遞臺灣豐富多元、民主的文化價值觀,與此同時亦將持續推動與世界各國原住民族的合作交流,促進我國原住民族之國際參與,提升臺灣在國際的能見度。

Following the publication in June 2020 of the Mandarin version of the special issue on Indigenous peoples policy achievements 2016-2020, the English version OPitiri’an to Heci^ no Nitayalan no Yin-cu-min-cu/ Indigenous Peoples Policy Achievements 2016-2020 Special Issuehas also now been published. This publication makes it the CIP’s first bilingual issue to have an English and Indigenous language title. This special issue takes stock of the CIP’s 20 important policy achievements and journey over the past four years. More importantly, the title of each chapter in this issue is shown in Indigenous languages, allowing international readers to see the rich diversity of Indigenous languages while also achieving Indigenous language preservation and heritage and the implementation of the Indigenous Languages Development Act passed in 2017.

In the chapter titled “Reviving the Austronesian Forum 10 Years On”, Austronesian culture is highlighted as an important foundation upon which the CIP engages in international exchange. The CIP established the Austronesian Forum in Palau as a permanent organization on April 8, 2008. After a 10-year hiatus due to changes in government and foreign policy, the Austronesian Forum was finally restarted on August 1, 2018. The Executive Yuan approved on March 19, 2019 the Austronesian Forum 6-Year Plan (2020-2025) put forward by the CIP. Total funding for the plan is NT$ 739.78 million. The Executive Council meeting of the Austronesian Forum was held at the Grand Hotel Taipei on November 23, 2020. Fourteen Ambassadors and Representatives accredited to Taiwan attended the Executive Council meeting to discuss cooperation in and promotion of international affairs among Indigenous peoples in the Austronesian region.

   The pace of indigenous policy development in Taiwan is impressive even on an international scale. To facilitate mutual policy exchanges, this special issue will be shared with members of the Austronesian Forum, diplomatic missions in Taiwan with which the CIP has close exchanges, and Taiwan’s representative offices abroad so that the international community may better understand the current situation and progress of Indigenous people’s policies in Taiwan.

The CIP aims to spread Taiwan’s values of diversity and democracy, expand cooperation and exchange with Indigenous peoples all over the world, facilitate the international participation of Taiwan’s Indigenous peoples and thereby increase Taiwan’s visibility in the international community.
