Studies according to the Japanese people from the history, the Tai Ya race ancestors live at first to the middle Mt. Da Ba Chien. But the Tai Ya race believe at the beginning of ancestors occupy mountain Ba Yang (upstream the Taichung country Meiji hot spring), the latter beginning moves at the Mt. Da Ba Chien, multiplys for the descendants seeks another means of livelihood, is toward the center country, north places such as country, Yilan. Our village original resident, one from Taichung country albizzia julibrissin piedmont Ta Li brook Bai Go; One from the Da Shan Ke ken brook upstream, (Chiao Ban mountain) sends here take the clan as the unit, it moves into the survey is:
The Qing Dynasty time in 1884 (Guangxu 10), Liu Mingch'uan "proposed supervised supervises the Taiwan military affairs the post by former Chihli" to come the management war, gives the Fujian governor, followed orders arranges Taiwan Province after war. Must self-provide based on the funds, and for can plan the submarine cable which inside and outside the entire island is interlinked to deploy, Liu Mingch'uan take expands "quarries a mountain to caress aboriginal" the policy as a method, on the one hand offers amnesty the Taiwan original resident, another aspect lets the official involvement camphor enterprise the management, by sufficient military expenses.
Because offers amnesty is take the military force as supporter, if does not abide, but strongly is engaged in. Specially is rich in the camphor the center north mountainous area, obviously assumes name of the development, the line conquers the reality to slaughter the battlefield. In 1885 (Guangxu 11) to 1889 (Guangxu 15), north Wu Lai came, to be Da Ke Ken, upstream the Lan Yang brook "Hsi Tou aboriginal " all once encounters the attack of Qing military.
The Nan'ao war "The War of Kuang Li Ling " 1,889 to 1890 the most rank smell of blood fierce combat. But this campaign is Liu Mingch'uan nephew grandson Vice General Liu Ch'ao leads the valve brave 900 people by the Shiao Pi Nan pond (now Han Hsi village) to lead the way into the mountain. Therefore, the Qing Dynasty quarries a mountain to caress a policy, actually always is seeks chart of the development enterprise by the military force rank smell of blood event. In Qing Dynasty rule time original resident society and non- substantive positive construction.
The Japanese rule time on April 17, 1895, the clear country and Japan signed the Treaty of Shimonoseki, Taiwan will cede gives Japan, said from the law, Taiwan will become Japanese from now on the new territory.

Enterprise of the Taiwan future will need to look in aboriginal, if will start the enterprise in the mountainous region, first will have to cause aboriginal the people to obey my government, will have to cause aboriginal people obeying, will eliminate uses the prestige exception, simultaneously will have to serve with the nurture policy. The date governs the initial period to suppose a Nan'ao hall, the series imperial Yilan area the original resident. In 1930 (the Republic of China nine years) changes suppose the Taipei state commanded nine country. This village is Luo Tungchun, gets down supposes 13 society, has jurisdiction by the police class respective minute room.
Recovers time 1,945 Taiwan to recover supposes the peaceful township, this village supposes governs when at the beginning of governs five villages, initially is Luo Tungch'u to have jurisdiction by the Taibei country, 1949 changes affilliate north peak area bureau. 1,950 entire provincial banks politics region adjustment, Yilan supposes the country, this village also independently supposes the township, commands seven villages (now is ten villages) respectively be the Han Hsi, Song Luo, the Cho Shui (now for Le Shui village), the Tu Chang (and for Ta Ping), Ta Ping, the Szu Chi, Be Nan (now for the Nan Shan village) and so on the village.
