"Tjimur" is the Paiwan name for the village known as "San-ti-men" in Chinese. This cradle of culture for the Paiwan tribe is located in San-ti-men Township, Pingtung County. The dance company's Chinese name contains the characters "ku" and "hsin" (or "old" and "new") which suggests that the group's new spirit of dance is inspired by an ancient culture.
