"Yam", as a linguistic entity, denotes a kind of naturally grown food. But, for Taiwanese, it means more than that. Geographically, the Formosa have a similar shape as yams. As a kind of food, it was part of major source for Taiwanese. In addition, yam can grow and proliferate in many sterile lands. Strenghth of sustainability and the will to struggle with harsh livings not only identify with the history of Taiwanese, but also become part of the nature of Taiwanese. "Yam" is the same term, of identity and of aspiration, as "Taiwanese".
