Glaze beads, also called “Dragonfly Beads by Japanese, are regarded as a treasure passed down in family or used as wedding gift by the Paiwan and Rukai tribes. For Taiwanese aborigines Paiwan and Rukai, glass beads are more than glass. In ancient aboriginal societies, glass beads are not simply an ornament, they are a symbol. A glass bead can be used as money or trade for goods. It maintains s family’s finance. By threading a string of beads, it shows their most significant meanings. Dozens or even hundreds of glass beads represent the power and wealth of each family. It is a symbol of family history as well as the ancestors' blessings and wishes for the descendants. It is the tradition and the mystery of aboriginal culture and history make glass beads so attractive. Furthermore, the true value of the glass beads exists in each single bead that has passed down for thousand of years in the families of the tribes. “Each bead, each string and each pattern is the evidence of aboriginal history,” a quote from vuvu (a title for the older generation in Paiwan).
