Welcome to Island Folklore: Taiwanese Tales & Traditions—a growing and freely-available online repository of Taiwan’s folktales, history, legends, myths and traditions.
Our goal is to celebrate Taiwan’s diversity, culture and heritage. That spirit of celebration is at the core of our endeavour.
The Island Folklore Society
A society for the collection, preservation, translation, promotion and celebration of Taiwanese Tales & Traditions.
Island Folklore’s stories are organized into eight very general and overlapping categories.
