Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Infernal Generals refer to the designated subordinate generals of gods, and they are responsible for guarding and assisting god. Nowadays, the General Dance troupes in various areas across Taiwan vary in customs, facial masks, number of dances, and formations. Chief Infernal Officers is also one of the Infernal Generals. Because fewer and fewer young people are interested in joining the Chief Infernal Officers, it has almost become extinct. Through this cyber fair, we hope that we can spread this Taiwanese culture all over the world and that’s why we do the research for this project.
