The Paiwan are one of the indigenous ethnolinguistic minority groups of Taiwan. Their language is a member of the vast Austronesian language family, and belongs to its northernmost and most ancient subgroup.

This volume presents a colection of one hundred texts in the Paiwan language. The first seventy-four texts were collected by two Japanese anthropologists, Naoyoshi Ogawa and Erin Asai, before the Second World War, and the remaining twenty-six were collected by one of the co-authors of this volume, Reverent John Whitehorn, from England, when he was working with the Presbyterian church in the Paiwan area in the early 1950s.
