Mareppa Police Post

Mareppa Police Post is located inside the Xinwangyang Cemetery in Ren'ai Township, Nantou County, on the 29 km point of the Lixing Industrial Road, at an altitude of about 1,500 meters.

Xinwangyang Cemetery was originally the Wangyang village, also known as Mariba or Mareba. The people got relocated to settle here during the Japanese occupation. In the post-war period, due to landslides and stress about the safety of residence, the village was collectively moved to a place with relatively stable ground in the southwest and named Xinwangyang.

Nowadays, most of the tribal people are engaged in non-tropical and high-mountain agricultural work, which is an important source of local income.

Jiuhaocha (Old Haocha) Elementary School

The Old Haocha Elementary School, located in Wutai Township, Pingtung County, is currently abandoned. The ceiling of the building collapsed, leaving only the walls, beams, pillars, and overgrown grass. During the Japanese occupation, the Government-General in Taiwan set up a police post and educational institution on the edge of the Old Haocha Village in the east with the aim to transfer tribal power through the entry of state power, and to become the main authority to manage the village. Also, to stabilize tribal governance through national education and teaching village children Japanese.  In the post-war period, the National Government established independent villages based on each police post, and the original educational institute was restructured into the Haocha Public School.
