Handicrafts and models of houses belonging to different indigenous groups are exhibited to show connections between their daily life and community.
Displays include ancestor posts and scale models of a traditional dwelling of the
Tao and a men's gathering house of the Tsou, the Amis hearth, a life-size Paiwan slate house, pottery, musical instruments, fishing and hunting, and agriculture implements. They all interpret the life of Taiwan indigenous peoples and their adaptation to natural living conditions, and show the relationship between implements of daily life and cultural context. Films played on this floor introduce traditional pottery techniques of the Amis and contemporary pottery making of the Paiwan, manufacture of personal knives by artists of the northern Paiwan, carving by artists of the southern Paiwan, and the Mayasvi Festival and alcohol-brewing process of the Tsou.
