igenous knowledge is the key to maintain the sustainable development of the tribe, Kaohsiung Medical University (later known as Gao Medical University) into tribal medicine has a long history, as early as 1958, gao medical opened the first Taiwan "mountain doctor medical speciality", Du smart President's far-reaching insight, in order to cultivate indigenous medical personnel as the job.Then, the Ministry of Education's first-time public-paid doctor system, with the high-san apricot society to the indigenous people as the main environment, but also into the roots of the indigenous people doctors.For nearly three decades, high-health insurance has continued to be implemented in the Health Care Promotion Program (IDS Program) in the First Nations Area of Kaohsiung City (Peach Source, Namasha, Maolin), but our imagination of tribal health is gradually draining the direction of the cultivation of indigenous medical talents and gradually falling into the colonial leadership without finding a way out?

Since the August 8 disaster, Gao Medical University has continued to accompany the Namacha people through a long road of cultural and medical reconstruction, in the process of constantly discovering the shadow of colonialism implied by medical assistance and social workers.Is the first thought of the Indigenous physicians and medical workers who nurtured the indigenous consciousness of Du Ming in 1958?How can we maintain this level of concept when we implement the USR program in 2019?

In the process of cooperation, how to play the knowledge and subjectivity of the indigenous people?How to think about the sustainable development of tribal health with tribal knowledge as the core?How to form an equal and successful original Han partnership?How to create a new opportunity for home-growing medical care in the cross-cutting context?
