In addition to enjoying nature’s selfless embrace in Taitung, Dacota is also very interested in the indigenous cultures of the East Coast. “Taitung is a little different from Hualien. Just walking around, you can run into super friendly indigenous persons without needing to make a special trip out to the tribal villages.” He said that when he’s not hiking, he spends time with his aboriginal friends and even participates in tribal activities. His carefree and unfettered personality makes it easy for him to mingle, interact, and have fun with them.
At present, Dacota is a foreign language consultant with the Taitung County Government. He assists the county government with translation, foreign guest reception, and plays an indispensable role in promoting bilingualization in Taitung. After a half year of being in Taitung, he believes that Taitung can be a mecca for foreign tourists because of the beautiful natural environment and conditions as well as good public safety. Dacota said, “The purity and beauty of Taitung needs to be preserved by the residents living here. If everyone works together to maintain a clean and natural environment, foreigners will want to come here for vacation.”
