the past, most tribes in Taiwan, except the Atayal and Saisiyat, made pottery,
however, this was only done using simple tools, such as wooden pottery pat,
bamboo knife, cobblestone, dustpan and basket. However, after the industrial
products were commonly used in Taiwan, only the Tao (Yami) people still make
potteries for daily usage. Pottery producing is a sacred job, people make sacrifices
before commencing, and there are taboos all through the process.
