“After his retirement, Pai still goes to many places to give language lessons, together with his elder sister, Pai Mei-hui (白美惠). Both of them have made great contributions to the preservation of Aboriginal culture and language,” Chu said.

“Even though he has retired, Pai still travels from Sinying (新營) to Jiali (佳里) every week to teach the three Yu siblings. He also acts as lead language teacher in several schools’ mother tongue learning clubs. We all greatly admire his spirit of public service,” Chu said.
