  • The Council of Indigenous Peoples Stated that the Draft Revision to the Status Act For Indigenous Peoples is on the Way

    The Taipei High Administrative Court heard Siraya People’s administrative lawsuit today (26th). The plaintiff appointed lawyers to express that the government had not fulfilled the President’s political opinions. “The government had amended the Status Act For Indigenous Peoples to enable the Plains peoples to obtain the status of ‘Plains Indigenous Peoples’. It had been referred to the Interior Committee for consultation within the Caucas,” the committee said. The Council pointed out that, from May to June 2017, Lin, Wan-I, member of the Executive Yuan, invited representatives of the plains peoples for negotiation in Tainan, Taichung, Kaohsiung, Hualien and New Taipei City. More than 60% supported the revision of the Status Act For Indigenous Peoples and the addition of the status of “Plains Indigenous Peoples”. The Council emphasized that the Executive Yuan, on the basis of the opinions of the majority of the plains peoples mentioned above, proposed the revision to the Status Act For Indigenous Peoples on August 17, 2017 to add the status of “Plains Indigenous Peoples” and sent it to the Interior Committee of the Legislative Yuan on 24 December 2018. However, as there was still no consensus among the parties and groups on the status of the plains peoples, they must be sent to the Caucas for consultation. Eventually, the Council stated that the Executive Yuan had listed the draft revision to the Status Act For Indigenous Peoples as the top priority in this session. It was hoped that the Legislative Yuan would consider the historical justice of the indigenous peoples and complete the consultation as soon as possible so that the plains peoples could acquire the status and rights of the Indigenous Peoples.
