Su’ao Township’s Dakenggu Community
Dakenggu Community is located along the coast in Su’ao Township at the southernmost edge of the Lanyang Plain. It shares the same origins as Dakenggu in Toucheng, but was split off from the original settlement to meet developmental needs. An old saying goes that Dakenggu smells of dried fish, which vividly echoes the area’s early history of seine fishing from neighboring waters. The community is home to an ancient well and a building constructed of Qixingling black shale, which features a representation of a seine net at its entrance that echoes the settlement’s history. In order to more concretely highlight Dakenggu’s fishing village characteristics, the community hopes to use this project to promote resident participation and democratically develop a shared vision for the future.
