The Tawu have lived fishing since more than 3000 years before. Every year from March to June, the flying fish follow the Black Current to Taiwan. Each year they hold the very important Fish Calling Ritual. The Yami have no chiefs; rather elders from families are selected as advisors and these decide on important issues.
