Please help me check The Saisiyat means “true or real human being” in native language, and they live over wide areas, but they are divided into two communities in substance: North and South. Even if they are separated into two areas, they still have something in common: belief that has a pantheon. In fact, they have four deities, each with specialized functions: Pacusiru is concerned with birth, Tenanto with death, Kaaran with rain, and Ta’ay with agriculture. The Saisiyat would hold annual ceremonies to beg deities to forgive them, and It is said that make Ta’ay drunk so that they would learn agricultural skills. They were once thought to be a branch of The Amis in 2007. The Saisiyat reclaimed their identity.

In the native language of the Saisiyat people, "Saisiyat" means “true or real human being.” They live over a wide area, but are substantially divided into North and South communities. Although they are separated into two areas, they nevertheless have something in common: their belief in a pantheon. In fact, they have four deities, each with specialized functions: Pacusiru is concerned with birth, Tenanto with death, Kaaran with rain, and Ta’ay with agriculture. The Saisiyat hold annual ceremonies to beg their deities to forgive them. It is said that [not sure here - the ceremonies make Ta'ay drunk?] make Ta’ay drunk, which ensures a successful harvest. The Saisiyat were once thought to be a branch of the Amis in 2007 [unclear here - did people think this in 2007, or were they a branch of the Amis in 2007?]. The Saisiyat reclaimed their identity [from the Amis? how? this needs a little more information.].
