My Adventure Experiences in Search of Identity of Self, Ethnicity and Profession
indigenous social work
Assuming diverse identities as a female, indigenous individual (both Bunun and Amis), and social worker, etc., I have experienced contradictions and conflicts of different identities in different relationships or environments, and have often felt inferior and confused. Therefore, the question “Who am I” has continued to appear during various phases of my life course. To figure out who I am, I set out on the journey of self-identification. In terms of the research method, I adopted autoethnography, a narrative research approach, seeking to present the positions of and interactions among various identities in different relationships and under different systems in the dominant culture, indigenous community, and urban environment through the exploration of self-experience. Putting myself in cultural and social contexts, I organized and delineated the contours of self-identity, ethnic identity, and indigenous social worker one by one. This research will investigate four main aspects: (1) development of various phases of the life course; (2) development centered on stories; (3) discussion centered on identification; (4) retrospect/discussion and reflection. Having experienced confusion, helplessness, and fear, and having felt like giving up, eventually through narrative, writing, dialogue, and reflection, I have gradually constructed my self-identity and embarked on a journey of self-identification. Finally, the research reveals that identification will adjust, adapt, and transform according to the changes in identities, relationships, environments, contexts, and social structures. After transformation, self-awareness, self-interpretation, and self-affirmation will begin to take form. Furthermore, ethnic identity has given me an idea to search for the roots of ethnic culture and strengthened my sense of commitment to preserving my ethnic culture. In the future, I will strive to do my utmost to facilitate and promote the development of indigenous peoples.
