In ancient times, the Pangcah Tribe passed on their culture orally by telling stories about the beautiful coastal forest, the ocean, and the intertidal zone, a place that teems with life. An intertidal zone is the area between high and low tide. As a result of the tide, the coastline is not fixed like a line on a map, but moves in and out, every day. Looking out across this intertidal zone into the sea, the Pangcah people told stories of a fish that came to live in a tree and of a tribe of fish that lives near the coast and takes care of the land. These are stories of friendship between natural creatures. Nature and friendship are essential elements of the oral culture of the Pangcah people.
This story of the fish in the tree from Miya not only points out the ecological role of the screw pine on seashores, but also describes species like the bird’s nest fern, crape myrtle, sugar palm, and bishop wood accurately in just a few words. The warmth of the characters, who help and encourage one another, attests to the spirit of helping each other in the Pangcah (Amis). Reading a story that contains such keenly observed natural detail combined with a moral vision that could be understood in terms of symbiosis, we can’t help but feel awed by traditional indigenous wisdom.
