  • The Origin and Significance of August 1st, the Indigenous Peoples’ Day

    I. From “Fan”, “Takasago-zoku”, “Shanbao” to “Indigenous Peoples” Indigenous peoples are the original owners of Taiwan. Nevertheless since more than four hundred years ago, they have been reigned by foreign regimes and given different names. For instance, during the rule of the Qing Dynasty, indigenous peoples were called “fan”, meaning barbarian. Qing used the term ‘cooked/tamed/civilized fan’ for those who had pledged their allegiance, and ‘raw/wild/uncivilized fan’ to define those people who had not submitted to Qing rule. During Japanese rule, the Japanese government referred to them as ‘fan’ or ‘Takasago-zoku’. During the early period of Chinese Nationalist Kuomintang(KMT) rule, the term ‘shanbao’, meaning ‘mountain compatriots’, was invented. All these terms are discriminatory, stigmatized and invented by the rulers. Indigenous peoples themselves did not have the right to determine their own names. Since 1984, there have been people claimed to rectify the term ‘shanbao’ to ‘indigenous people’. On December 29th, 1984, a group of indigenous intellectuals established the very first indigenous rights advocacy group and named it ‘Association for Advancing Taiwan Indigenous People’s Rights’. With the term ‘indigenous people’, which was selected and decided by indigenous people themselves, this term came up with the hope to get rid of the stigma and made the request to the mainstream society to recognize the fact that indigenous people are the original owners of this land and they refuse to be colonized anymore. After that, The Declaration on the Rights of Taiwan Indigenous People was issued in 1987 to proclaim indigenous people’s status and rights. A highly converged consensus on the claim for the rectification of name among the indigenous society has become the core demand of the indigenous constitutional amendment movement. On April 15th, 1991, indigenous people raised their first protest demonstration for name rectification during the National Assembly amen

  • Regarding the Convening of a Temporary Meeting and a Press Conference of Yuchi Township, Nantou County for Thao People’s Allocation of Land:

    1. Before the announcement, relevant organizations were invited to discuss and fully express their opinions on the traditional lands of Thao People. The Measures for the Allocation of Indigenous Peoples’ Land or Tribal Land were adopted on the third reading of the Legislative Yuan. On June 24, 2015, the President promulgated the amendment to Article 21 of the Indigenous Peoples Basic Act, empowering the Council of Indigenous Peoples to enact statutory orders to promote the operation of land demarcation for Indigenous Peoples. On February 6, 2018, the Council convened a deliberative group meeting in accordance with the provisions of the Methods. It invited Nantou County Government, Yuchi Village Public Office, National Property Administration, MOF, Council on Agriculture, Executive Yuan, Sun-moon Lake National Scenic Area Administration Office, The 3rd River Management Office, WRA and other public land management organs to attend the meeting. After thorough discussion among the participating organs, the meeting reached a consensus on the result of respecting the traditional land allocation of Thao People. 2. The traditional lands of Thao People were public land delimited according to the laws (excluding the private land). According to the Method, the scope of land delimitation in traditional areas was limited to public land. Private land within the announced boundaries was not delimited into it according to the laws. Private land ownership was completely unchanged and unaffected, which was clearly marked in the announced map information. For the Indigenous Peoples, the land carried language, culture, and history. The Thao People had established the land scope in the traditional area on the basis of the Indigenous Peoples Basic Act, the Method and historical facts, which were both well-founded in law and well-rooted. 3. Only a few development cases with adverse effects on the environment require tribal consent through consultation. According to the Method of Obtaining the Consent and Participation of Indigenous Tribes through Consultation, the consent or participation of Indigenous Peoples or tribes was required through consultation only in cases of infrin

  • What Is Pingpu Peoples?

    The Pingpu Peoples is a branch of the Austronesian Linguistic Family spread from the Lanyang Plain, The Northeast Corner, The Northern Coast, Taipei Basin, and Western Plains to Tainan, Kaohsiung and Pingtung. Living by the sea, the Pingpu Peoples and the Austronesian Linguistic Family in other parts of Asia have been traveling with each other by boats. However, when Taiwan emerges on the world stage, it was the same reason of locating by the sea that it has to face the impact of political, economic, linguistic, cultural and other forces from a large number of people coming in outside of Taiwan. Therefore, since the 17th century, the Pingpu Peoples has been faced with the crisis of ethnic cultural identity as well as struggle, extinction, and preservation. The census of the Pingpu Peoples was first recorded in the household survey during Dutch Formosa Era, where the total number was between 40, 000 and 60, 000. According to several surveys conducted during Japanese occupation, the number was roughly between 40,000 and 60,000. Since the cancelation of the nationality column in household registration data, the population of the Pingpu Peoples had become difficult to estimate. In spite of this, when the Japanese conducted various ethnographic surveys and studies in Taiwan in the early 20th century, they were still able to put forward scientific classification for the Pingpu Peoples based on geographical relationship between the groups, historical relationship of the origin of tribes and their migration to Taiwan, the social organization structures, and the similarities and differences of constitution and language. Classification of Pingpu Peoples The introduction of the concept of “ethnic group” and the classification of its practical operation were roughly formed by the investigators in the early days during Japanese occupation. After Taiwan’s secession in 1895, the colonial government spent a lot of efforts and resources on the investigation and study of the Austronesian Peoples in the fields of ethnology and physical anthropology in order to effectively govern Taiwan. Therefore, Kanori Ino andDennojou Awano were the first to follow the two c

  • The relationship between Taiwan’s Indigenous Peoples and Austronesian Linguistic Family in the world

    Taiwan had long been inhabited by the Austronesian Linguistic Family before the Han Chinese moved here on a large scale. The Austronesian Linguistic Family belongs to Malay race, the most widely spread ethnic group in the world. The range starts from Madagascar in Southeast Africa across the Indian Ocean to Easter Island in the Pacific Ocean and from Taiwan in the north to New Zealand in the south. Taiwan is the northernmost part of where the Austronesian Linguistic Family is living. The Austronesian Linguistic Family living in Taiwan can be divided into the Indigenous Peoples and other minor Plains Indigenous Peoples. Among the former, there are 16 indigenous groups, most of which have their own language, customs and tribal structures but are also facing problems of rapid modernization. Many of the Plains Indigenous Peoples have lost their original language and customs, and it is urgent to strengthen their revitalization of language and culture.
