During the Japanese Occupation, the noble millet seeds were planted on the border of Yungle Village and Sigang District. The finest raw millet harvest was shipped to Japan to make brooms. After the retrocession of Taiwan, millet broom weaving in Yungle Village also became very popular. Most of the village residents made brooms for a living, and later, like many of Taiwan's traditional handicrafts in general, its production was unable to compete with machine-made mass production. Subsequently, handmade noble millet brooms was gradually on the decline. 60 years later, Yungle Village community now has only three elderly grandmothers remaining, who know how to weave this unique type of brooms.

In order to preserve this art, Yungle Village has been actively promoting community build-ing since 2011, encouraging its residents to regain the skill and to extend it to making cultural and creative handicrafts, not just broom weaving, thus, exhibiting unprecedented beauty, giving new life to noble millet weaving.
