Abstract

This paper analyses the examples of the Maga, Oponoho and Dona settlements (the “Lower Three Settlements”) of the Rukai tribe to discuss changes in indigenous settlement spaces in response to the impact of an external culture. This study observes the actual spatial changes of the Maga, Oponoho and Dona settlements from the time Japanese police were stationed there, in terms of scale of facilities, policy promotion and geographical location. Furthermore, the study discusses the factors that caused differences in the degree and nature of these changes. The results provide an insight into spatial changes of indigenous settlements during the Japanese colonial era.
