The chief from Mahebo tribe. As the protagonist of Wushe incident, he witnessed how traditional values among aborigines had been transformed under the Japanese rule for over twenty years and how seediq’s belief in a moral order gaya had been shattered. He had tried to resist rule by Japan, but failed twice because his plans were divulged. At his third attempt, he decided to fight for dignity and freedom. He knew from the start that he stood no chance of defeating the rule of Japanese. Still, in defense of the ancient faith, he decided to bear the burden of the tribe’s fate, worthy of his ancestors.
