Saving Tarunas Police Post—A Record of Bunun Cultural Legacy along the Batongguan Traversing Trail(一)

The Lakulaku River basin in the eastern part of the Yushan National Park is the ancestral home of the Isbukun and Takbanuaz tribes of the east Bunun tribe. Dr. Chun-Ming Huang of the Department of Architecture, Chung Yuan Christian University, was commissioned to undertake the research projects “Plan on the Preservation and Restoration of Historical Sites in the Lakulaku River Watershed” and “A Survey of Old Bunun Tribes at the Lakulaku River Watershed” from 1998 to 2000. It was found that there are as many as 55 historic Bunun architectural clusters and relics from the Japanese colonial era along the Batongguan Traversing Trail.

Among them, the Tarunas Police Post and Fort Vavanu are valuable monuments of humanistic history along the Batongguan Traversing Trail. There are many Bunun settlement ruins scattered in the area, which serve as evidence of early Bunun settlement in eastern Taiwan.

Today, members of the public reported that the roof of the Tarunas Police Post has been damaged by wind toppled trees. In addition to removing the fallen trees, the mission will also record the current conditions of the preservation of the cultural relics in the police post.

The Yushan National Park would like to remind the public that when hiking there, visitors should not take anything away. Let’s take care of these precious monuments, sites, and relics together.
