An exhibition featuring plants used by the Amis, the nation's biggest aboriginal tribe, to make toys, traps and fishing gear will open tomorrow at the National Museum of Prehistory in Taitung. The exhibition, called "The World of the Plants of the Amis Aborigines" will display a wide variety of cultural items made by Taitung's Amis people to show how they use plants in their daily lives. Traditional skills to be showcased include using plant fiber to make fabric, using bamboo to make firecrackers and using material from plants to construct shelters and equipment. The exhibition will run until Feb. 25 next year.
