     Tayouan Paipai is a Taiwanese language poetry anthology that takes the Siraya people as its main topic. Tayouan is a name taken from a plains indigenous group around the Anping area of Tainan. “Paipai,” is a word meaning “woman” in a plains indigenous language of southern Taiwan. This poetry anthology, besides portraying the Siraya historical culture, also uses the sound of “Taoyouan, bye bye” to memorialize the passing of an ethnic group and posits a denunciation of the neglected and invaded Taiwan land on behalf of history.
