The Indigenous Peoples - Urban Indigenous Peoples
According to archaeology, cultural anthropology, and linguistics studies, it is reasonable to infer that the indigenous peoples in Taiwan have been living on this land since 6,000 years ago. Like other traditional societies, the indigenous peoples have migrated to the cities under the impact from the modern trends, changes of financial situations, and hardship of making a living in their native place. Conflicts existed due to difference in thoughts between the indigenous peoples and Han Chinese. With the efforts from both groups, the foundation of mutual respect has gradually been established through the interaction among the younger generations. Through literature, music, and traditional arts, the understanding and appreciation for the indigenous peoples are facilitated.
