Aboriginal Fabric Preservation and Maintenance Seminar

This plan is an initial plan for cooperation between university departments in the fields of fabrics, clothing and museums and aboriginal tribes. It is expected to combine the registration and preservation knowledge of fabric science and museums with the cultural knowledge of the aboriginal people themselves, and through collaboration and mutual exchange. Achieve the purpose of knowledge sharing and implement it through field operations. The preliminary planning of this plan is to divide the study activities into two parts, the first part is the study workshop, and the second part is partly on-site investigation and practice.
In the part of the study workshop, the location is tentatively set as the Cultural Assets Preservation Center in Tainan City. In addition to making it easier for the participants to get in touch with and familiarize themselves with the Cultural Assets Preservation Center, it also takes into account the imbalance between the North and the South in related types of cultural asset activities in the past. Selected to hold workshop in Tainan. The main purpose of the workshop is to allow aborigines who are interested in preserving and registering their own textile cultural relics to participate as much as possible in the form of intensive teaching and practice. The expected benefit is that, through the opportunity of this study workshop, the basic knowledge of textile cultural relics in textile science, museum registration and preservation can be brought to the public.
to those in need. When the museum-level collection equipment and funds are not sufficient and available, from the perspective of the aborigines themselves, we should try our best to increase the chances of traditional textile cultural relics being preserved in a better state. It will not allow the fabric cultural relics of the aborigines to be damaged due to time and environmental factors while waiting for museum funds, collections or policies. And before the start of the workshop, arrange 10 expert meetings or tribal meetings. A single meeting convenes 3 scholars and experts. At least 1 of the 3 scholars and experts must be an expert in the study of aboriginal fabric weaving and its culture. After discussions at the meeting, for the aborigines
Discuss and formulate the special terms and interpretation data of aboriginal fabrics in the inspection and registration form of fabric cultural relics. After 10 expert consultations or tribal meetings, the specialized terminology and interpretation materials for fabrics will become the teaching materials for this workshop, allowing participants to use vocabulary and methods suitable for the context of aboriginal fabric cultural relics to register Operation.
In the part of the tribe’s on-site investigation and implementation, the location is tentatively determined to be a tribe in northern or central Taiwan that has a collection of traditional fabric relics of the aborigines and has an urgent need for preservation and registration, and whose ethnic culture and fabric technology have been discussed in expert meetings or tribes. Those discussed in the meeting have the highest priority. The main purpose of the tribal implementation is to go to 1-2 aboriginal tribes through the project team to assist the tribesmen to investigate and examine the tribe's traditional fabric relics. And through the project team and the students who participated in the tribal operation recruitment, the tribals assisted in the registration practice, file creation and simple preservation practice, so as to achieve the core purpose of this plan, that is, to help the original Residents register and preserve their own textile cultural relics.
