There has been a concerted effort to develop and effectively manage a definition of a "sense of place" in Taiwan. While history is the record of the past, heritage is what contnues from the past that influences our present lives. This paper looks at Taiwan's attempts to explore and maintain heritage among the Amis of the east coast, and in museums based on the local archaeological record. These ongoing projects are integrated in local community and national efforts.
