This research considers the legend of Wu Feng, created during the Qing dynasty.I undertake my research with a critical mind towards the reasons why the legend of Wu Feng was created in Zhuluo Province (Jiayi), and further what kind of historical background a person like Wu Feng was born into, while incorporating perspectives of the immigrant history and history of development in Taiwan. In 2007 I edited and published through Ryokuyin Publishers 2 Volumes on A Collection of Related Documents on "Wu Feng," and 1 Volume on A Collection of Related Documents on "The Bell of Sayon," and maintained an ongoing interest in these two stories connected to the indigenous people pf Taiwan. Subsequently, in this present research, as a technical way of thinking, I examine the birthing process of "Righteous Wu Feng" keeping in mind the main factors which contributed to the creation of " The Bell of Sayon," namely, the following four points: 1) the period background, 2) the occurrence of the actual accident, 3) the elements of the chief characters and participants, and 4) the demands of the times.Whih these four points as a collective point of view, I examine a new approach to the birth of "Righteous Wu Feng."
