Sakinu Ahronglong


Sakinu Ahronglong was born in Taitung in 1972. He was born to the Paiwan Lalaulan clan. His father was abusive, which caused him to run away and his mother to leave. He was trained as a police officer and found law enforcement work in Taipei, before becoming a forest ranger. His first book, 山豬 (Hunter School), brought him success and was made into a film. He later founded a hunter school to educate and introduce youngsters to Paiwan culture and traditional Paiwan skills.
