The meaning of Atayal is “genuine person” or “brave man”
Behead The Atayal are one tribe of Taiwanese aborigines, known for being great warriors. For the man to earn his facial tattoo, he had to “bring back at least one human head; these expected to bring good harvests to the fields.” Only with these tattoos could one marry, and cross the hongu utux or the spirit bridge (the rainbow) to the after life. “Thus, the custom was considered indispensable to life and existence itself.”
“A girl would learn to weave when she was about ten or twelve. She had to master the skill to earn her tattoo. Only those with tattoos could marry, and after death, only those with tattoos could cross the hongu utux, or spirit bridge (the rainbow) to the hereafter.”
