Birth: 1872, Taiwan
Death: Nov. 28, 1930, Taiwan

Tribal chief, rebel, folk hero. The son of a chief of the Seediq tribe of Taiwanese Aborigines, he made a trip to Japan in 1911. Later he succeeded his father chief of the village of Mahebo, and became one of the most influential chiefs of the area of Wushe. In 1930 he led a revolt against oppressive Japanese rule in what is now known as the Wushe Incident. He ended up committing suicide by shooting himself with a pistol during the revolt to prevent the Japanese from capturing him alive. His skeletal remains were found in a remote cave in 1933, and were placed on display in the Department of Archaeology at Taihoku Imperial University as a warning to future rebels. After the arrival of the Kuomintang the bones were placed in a warehouse until 1974. In 1981 Rudao was finally given a proper burial. His story is the subject of the 2011 film Seediq Bale
