Lrikulau Children’s Book


“Lrikulau” is the name of the Formosan Clouded Leopard in the Rukai language, and also the title of Pacake Taugadhu’s picture book. Lrikulau is a sacred animal to the Rukai people because long ago, the leopard led their ancestors to the wonderful land of their original tribal territory. 

Through vibrant paintings and three languages (English, Chinese, and the Indigenous language of the Rukai), children everywhere can learn about the Rukai culture and the story of the leopard which has disappeared. 

Let’s learn how to protect the forest together—one day, the Lrikulau will return!
