In May 1st, 2016, Council of Indigenous Peoples passed the procedure of new draft bills, “Indigenous Legal Entities Planning and Setting”, then it consistently held 12 forums for “Indigenous Legal Entities” and 5 forums for “crucially consultative policies” to receive suggestions from all people in this profession. Then it started to amend the new draft bills, which are quite different from the previous version, so it will announce the new draft bill for 2nd time in order to receive more opinions.

Council of Indigenous Peoples indicates the procedure of new draft bills “Indigenous Legal Entities Planning and Setting” are different from the previous version in mainly three policy guidelines. One, missions of Indigenous Legal Entities are flexibly arranged by Indigenous tribes. Two, solidify co-operation between local government and the Indigenous Legal Entities. Three, allows indigenous president to be representatives of Indigenous Legal Entities.

Council of Indigenous Peoples pointed out, in the previous version of draft bill, Legal Indigenous Legal Entities shall define the mission of developing tribes, but effected by the Indigenous self-governing regulations. The future missions of developing tribes are planned in accordance with the regulation. Council of Indigenous Peoples emphasizes that Indigenous Legal Entities is not an “autonomous body (according in Local Government Act)”, so it does not belong to a part of township or county; therefore it has its own individual right. For the future co-operation, Indigenous Legal Entities shall be restricted by Indigenous self-governing regulations and administrative organs of government, and capable of organizing the consistent developing plan.”

Council of Indigenous Peoples stated that in order to solidify co-operation between local government and the Indigenous Legal Entities, by respecting Indigenous self-governing tribes, we shall clarify the Municipalities, County, city and Township (town, city, district) as local organization groups, and expect them to execute their duties, which makes local governments execute public affairs as a strong supporter for Indigenous Legal Entities.

Council of Indigenous People stated there are chairman of Community Development Associations, chief of Cultural Organizations and others, whom tribal citizens supported., so they have to be unified. Based on the diversified opinions, we make the combinational decision, which allows the indigenous president to be the representatives of Indigenous Legal Entities to enhance integration of land source.

Council of Indigenous People lastly stated that, from Oct. 27th 2017 until Dec. 26th 2017, Council of Indigenous People welcomes you to provide your suggestions to make the draft bills more complete. After the procedure of the new draft bill is confirmed, Council of Indigenous People will announce the relevant law regulations immediately and ensure the system of Indigenous Legal Entities is going to work.
