Partnered with the UNESCO, WMF is the very first non-profit organization dedicated in preserving historical architectural projects. In 2016, WMF added 50 new sites, located in 36 countries, to their preservation list. The Kucapungane Rukai’s slab-stone village was selected to be on the list this year, the only other heritage selected by the organization within Taiwan since the “flower village,” or Hua Zai, in Penghu was selected in 2004.

WMF has long been protecting and repairing nearly 800 historical sites located in 135 countries including Angkor Wat, Venice, Roman Forum, the Forbidden City, the Easter Island Statues, and others.

The Kucapungane Rukai has over 600 years of history. The Rukai village and the slab-stone houses provides invaluable historical and cultural evidence for the Austronesian, and it has long been listed as Taiwanese national and cultural heritage by the Ministry of Culture of Taiwan. Pan Men-an, the Magistrate of Pingtung, says being selected by WMF was not only an honor of the county but also for Taiwan for preserving the its cultural history.
