Ep 17 - Tao People of Lanyu and My Sister, the Serial Killer
As Lin returns from her trip to Taiwan, she shares a little about what she learned of the Tao people, an indigenous group from Lanyu Island off the coast of Taiwan (https://lanyu.land/category/people/). Her stories highlight the objectification of people when they become tourist attractions.
Margrit did some traveling through books when they read My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite (https://oyinkanbraithwaite.com/about-the-book/). In the book, older sister Korede is a nurse who cleans up after her younger sister, Ayoola, who has a habit of killing her boyfriends. It is a story about sisterhood, love and trust, and standing together against the patriarchy.
Question of the Episode: Have you ever traveled to a new place and learned about the historical complexities of that place?
