This paper presents the attitudes of the indigenous people towards satellite basics and applications before and after their participation in the learning activities associated with the project Atayal Satellite. The indigenous participants in the Atayal Satellite project and the authors both found the project extremely exciting. The participants were impacted in several ways. Participants’ feedbacks reveal that participants have increased willingness to study science, as well as increased knowledge of satellite technology. Simultaneously, participants were trained to operate GPS equipment and generate their own thematic satellite maps for their tribal villages. A thematic satellite maps with detailed information including house titles, public facility, administration regions, and scenery spots were completed. This project is an on-going pilot project supported by the National Science Council (NSC) in Taiwan.
