Title: How to edit Wikipedia of Paiwan?-- with the example articles of ethnoplants and traditional naming systems on lands.
Speaker: iyumu, tjaiwan parilaw
Abstract: From the relationship and importance of plants, land naming, and topographical environment in Paiwan culture, it shows the importance of writing to Paiwan Wikipedia. Finally, we will also point out what kind of challenges and difficulties this writing process may encounter at this stage.

In Paiwan language, there are many place names related to plants, terrain and environmental landforms. We hope to explain this relationship through this lecture, and then point out that Paiwan Wikipedia should not just be a Wikipedia of "Paiwan language". It is Paiwan Wikipedia with cultural significance and connotation. In the lecture, we will use the process of collecting Paiwan ethnic plants and traditional place names as an example. In addition to pointing out the cultural significance of these Paiwan names, we will try to point out several problems that may be encountered in the future: 1. Paiwan How are the differences between the various dialects of the Wan language presented on Wikipedia? 2. How did the Paiwan people, who had no written language in the past, cite literature records when writing Wikipedia? Examples: collection of oral documents on Wikisource. 3. The lack of Paiwan images on Wikimedia Commons.
