On Goings[edit]

Meetups (Edit-a-thons for Wikipedia)[edit]

Our meetups aim to share local and universal knowledge in Paiwan language by way of all kinds of free documents, to promote the use of Wikipedia Paiwan by encouraging its edition and reading and to increase the number and quality of articles on Wikipedia Paiwan.

We are working on the collection of new words and ideas in Paiwan language by making the list of pinayuanan vocabulary and the list of advanced level vocabulary while editing on Paiwan Wikipedia.
