鹿野的名稱即是充滿鹿的原野. 清代中晚期(同治, 光緒年間)即有原住民阿美族及少數漢人移懇於地, 直到1895年日本統治起, 開始了阿美族 平埔族 日本人 西部之漢人(閩 客)等族群移墾發展, 其中包含有農墾企業如糖,樟腦, 咖啡, 甘蔗等及自由移民為主. 1945年台灣由國民政府接收政權, 1946年鹿野鄉正式成立, 人口亦逐漸增加, 其中更包含了大陸藉, 外省軍人的移墾 (400多人)

During mid to late Ching Dynasty (mid 18th to late 19th cen.) there were a few aboriginal Amis aboriginals and Han Chinese cultivated here, till 1895 the Japanese ruling. Then Amis indigenous, Taiwanese Plain Aborigines, Japanese , Han Chinese from the west (Holo, Hakka) moved here and developed agricultural industries, including sugar, camphor, coffee, sugarcane, and free migration.

    In 1945 the KMT government took over the regime and the following year 1946 Luye township was officially set up. The population increased, including 400 or so KMT soldier-farmers who earlier retreated from mainland China.

歷經清朝,日本, 及國民政府統治迄今, 留下了許多歷史文化與建築, 生活方式等. 如: 龍田棋盤式街道, 日本神社, 鹿野水圳, 瑞源社區豐源圳, 水橋, 原住民阿美族收獲祭典等,是一個多元文化的歷史鄉鎮.

        Through the Ching Dynasty, Japan and KMT ruling till today, there are many historical memories, cultures, architectures left, accompanying different ways of life, such as the chessboard roads of village in Lungtien, the Japanese temple, the agriculture watering canals in Luye and its Rueiyuan community (Fen-Yuan Jun), water bridge, and harvest ritual of Amis aboriginals. These compose a township of multi-cultural life here.
