  • English version of the Indigenous Peoples Policy Achievements Special Issue incorporates different Indigenous languages to gain international exposure

    Since the publication of the Chinese version of the Indigenous Peoples Policy Achievements 2016-2020 Special Issue in June 2020, the Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP) subsequently published the English version titled OPitiri'an to Heci^ no Nitayalan no Yin-cu-min-cu/ Indigenous Peoples Policy Achievements 2016-2020 Special Issue. Published with both Indigenous languages and English in its title, it is the CIP’s first bilingual special issue. The publication covers the twenty major accomplishments of the CIP in the past four years and how they were achieved. More importantly, the titles of each chapter are presented in different Indigenous languages, allowing international readers to see the rich diversity of written Indigenous language. It also serves to preserve Indigenous languages and pass on their cultural heritage and is an actualization of the Indigenous Languages Development Act passed in 2017. In the chapter titled “Reviving the Austronesian Forum 10 Years Onward”, Austronesian culture is highlighted as an important foundation upon which the CIP promotes international exchange. Established by the CIP as a permanent organization on April 8, 2008 in Palau, the Austronesian Forum underwent a 10-year hiatus due to changes in administration and foreign policy but was finally reestablished on August 1, 2018. On March 19, 2019, the Executive Yuan approved the Austronesian Forum Six-Year Plan (2020-2025) put forward by the CIP, which received a total funding of NT$739.78 million. This year (2020), the Executive Council meeting of the Austronesian Forum was held at the Grand Hotel Taipei on November 23 and was attended by fourteen ambassadors and representatives accredited to Taiwan to discuss cooperation in and promotion of international affairs among Indigenous peoples in the Austronesian region. Even on the international stage, Taiwan’s pace in Indigenous policy development is second to none. To facilitate international exchange on Indigenous policies and help the international community better understand Taiwan’s current situation and achievements in Indigenous development, this special issue will be shared with members of th

  • Legislative Yuan passes the third reading of the amendment to the Status Act for Indigenous Peoples to offer remedial options to the orphaned children of Indigenous peoples who passed away before applying for status recovery

    The Legislative Yuan passed the draft amendment to the Status Act for Indigenous Peoples today (December 31, 2020), which focuses on offering remedial options to the orphaned children of Indigenous peoples who passed away before recovering their Indigenous status. The Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP) pointed out that prior to the implementation of the Status Act for Indigenous Peoples, Indigenous peoples may have been forced to forfeit their Indigenous status due to adoption or intermarriages between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Although status recovery was able to be applied for after the implementation of the Status Act for Indigenous Peoples, the orphaned children of Indigenous peoples who passed away before applying for status recovery were unable to recover their Indigenous status. This amendment passed by the Legislative Yuan allows people in such circumstances to be able to apply for the recovery of their Indigenous status. The CIP also pointed out that in the past, if an individual who was a child of intermarriage between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples did not take the surname of their Indigenous father or mother nor take a traditional Indigenous name, and passed away before recovering their Indigenous status, their children were also unable to recover their Indigenous status. However, after this amendment, a remedial option is offered to children of such individuals: apply to take a traditional Indigenous name within two years of the promulgation of the amendment and obtain Indigenous status. The CIP further pointed out that in the past, if an Indigenous individual wished to apply to acquire, forfeit, or change their Indigenous status, they would have to make their submission to the local household registration office of their registered domicile. This amendment relaxes this restriction, allowing Indigenous peoples to, in the future, submit their registration to any household registration office. Lastly, the CIP notes that the amendment has a two-year application deadline for some of the eligible cases and encourages peoples with Indigenous heritage who identify with their Indigenous culture to seize the opportunity to submit the

  • Creating employment for over ten thousand Indigenous peoples; expanding the area eligible for logging ban compensation; increasing the subsidy amount for housing construction/purchase and renovation; and building an Indigenous language-friendly environment

    To welcome the coming of the New Year (2021), the Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP) has implemented new policies to protect Indigenous rights. The policies include increasing the subsidy amount for housing construction/purchase to NT$220,000 and the subsidy amount for housing renovation to NT$110,000 and increasing the funding for the Indigenous Language-Friendly Environment Project. The CIP also stated that steady employment has been created for 17,491 Indigenous peoples in 2020; while the amendment to The Logging Ban Compensation for Lands Reserved for Indigenous Peoples Act has helped over 400,000 Indigenous peoples receive compensations totaling NT$1.9 billion. To implement President Tsai’s Indigenous policy of creating more than ten thousand new job opportunities while taking into account the social status and cultural characteristics of Indigenous groups, the CIP has created 17,491 steady job opportunities—including 1,176 caregiver vacancies, 117 Indigenous language education promotion personnel vacancies, and 532 forest ranger vacancies—that meet the needs of the Indigenous peoples. Over the past ten years, the CIP has attempted to resolve the complex land issues of the Indigenous peoples through drafting the Indigenous Peoples Land and Sea Areas Act as a single special law. However, due to the controversial nature of its provisions, the push for its legislation has seen little progress. Over the past four years, the CIP has taken an individualized legislative approach to overcoming legislative hurdles. For example, the amendment of The Logging Ban Compensation for Lands Reserved for Indigenous Peoples Act on December 31, 2019 expanded the scope of Indigenous people reserved lands eligible for compensation. This increased the land areas eligible for compensation to 63,354 hectares and helped over 42,730 people receive compensation, thus effectively actualizing policy implementation for Indigenous land justice. Furthermore, the Indigenous subsidy for housing construction/purchase and renovation had not seen any increase in subsidy funds in twelve years of implementation. Starting in 2021, in order to ease the housing cost burden for

  • Book launch for the Major Events in Indigenous History book series—the CIP, Ministry of Education, and the Ministry of Culture create an Indigenous historical narrative

    To create an Indigenous historical narrative and promote Indigenous historical justice and transitional justice, the Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP) held the book launch for the Major Events in Indigenous History book series today (January 25, 2021). The event was attended by CIP Minister Icyang Parod, Minister of Education Pan Wen-chung, and Ministry of Culture Secretary-General Chen Teng-chin, along with the authors of the book series. Between 2005 and 2019, the CIP has published ten books under the series—Mudan Incident , O lalood i Cepo' (Takangko Incident) , Karewan Incident, Nanzhuang Incident, Zyaw pinttriqan nqu llingay Mbngciq (Dabaoshe Incident), Zyaw pinttriqan nqu llingay Msbtunux (Takoham Incident), Zyaw pinttriqan nqu llingay Tapung (Lidongshan Incident), Cikasuan Incident, Truku Incident, and Bunun mas minbas Lipun (Dafen Incident). Due to the great response received after the book launch for the ten books held on February 19, 2020, the CIP decided to release a new edition of the Major Events in Indigenous History book series following review of the contents of the books by each author. The following is a full transcript of the speech given by CIP Minister Icyang Parod: Greetings to Minister Pan, Secretary-General Chen, our dear authors, and honored guests! In President Tsai Ing-wen’s official apology to Taiwan’s Indigenous population issued on August 1, 2016, she specifically said: “There is a book called ‘The General History of Taiwan’ published in 1920. In its foreword are these words: ‘Taiwan had no history. The Dutch pioneered it, the Koxinga Kingdom built it, and the Qing Empire managed it.’ This is a typical Han view of history. The truth is that Indigenous peoples have been here for thousands of years, with rich culture and wisdom that have been passed down through generations. But we only know to write history from the perspective of the dominant. For this, I apologize to the Indigenous peoples on behalf of the government.” The creation of an Indigenous historical narrative is therefore a major part of our mission to promote Indigenous historical justice and transitional justic

  • The Council of Indigenous Peoples Convenes the 2020 Annual Meeting on Indigenous Land Affairs—7,815 Hectares of Indigenous Reserve Lands Recovered with Great Success

    The Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP) convened the two-day annual meeting on indigenous land affairs today (December 23). The meeting was attended by roughly 200 government officials in charge of indigenous land affairs, including supervisors from municipal governments, country (city) governments, mayors (executives) of townships (cities, districts), and other supervisors and coordinators. During the meeting, the Annual Excellence Awards were awarded to local governments and their employees as gratitude for their contribution and hard work over the past year. CIP Minister Icyang Parod noted in the meeting that the amendment of Article 37 of the Slopeland Conservation and Utilization Act and the revocation of the provision that requires registration five years prior to land acquisition were promulgated on January 9, 2019 by President Tsai, allowing indigenous peoples to directly register and acquire the ownership of indigenous reserve lands. According to the statistics, the repatriation of indigenous reserve lands has achieved great success since the amendment was made in 2019. Currently, registration of ownership has been completed on roughly 18,404 pieces of land, totaling an area of approximately 7,815 hectares. In this meeting, the CIP conducted the annual implementation progress examination of policies related to indigenous land affairs and awarded the Annual Excellence Awards to local governments and relevant personnel for their hard work. The Pingtung County Government, Nantou County Government, and Taitung County Government were awarded the High Distinction Award, the Distinguished Award, and Excellence Award respectively for their overall performance in the implementation of policies related to indigenous land affairs. Additionally, the Renai Township Office of Nantou County received the most awards, including the High Distinction Award for their execution of the land repatriation plan and the Distinguished Award for their handling of illegal land use.

  • Indigenous Historical Justice and Transitional Justice Committee Literature Exhibition: Reopening Dialogue on an Island without a Voice (Malasawaday to ko sowal a kanatalNisatapang a mitek a malalicay)—A Gradual Reopening of Cross-Cultural Dialogue Among the Diverse Ethnic Groups in Taiwan

    Deputy Minister Afas Falah of the Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP) attended the seminar for the Indigenous Historical Justice and Transitional Justice Committee (“the Committee”) Literature Exhibition (Malasawaday to ko sowal a kanatalNisatapang a mitek a malalicay). The exhibition showcases the Committee’s works over the past three years, including the collection of truth clarification documents, compilation of field studies, studies of historical documents, and the implementation of social communication. Through this exhibition, the committee engages the public in the mutual discussion and examination of the history and uses the reopening of dialogue to seek reconciliation and coexistence. Deputy Minister Afas noted that Taiwan’s indigenous peoples were affected by their early cultural exchange with foreign visitors and have been scarred by a history of colonization, war, and loss of ancestral lands, resulting in a disconnection with their ancestral language and traditional culture. For this reason, President Tsai Ing-wen officially apologized to Taiwan’s indigenous population on August 1, 2016 and announced the establishment of the Indigenous Historical Justice and Transitional Justice Committee. The Committee, convened by President Tsai, is responsible for coordinating and implementing indigenous affairs and policies and serves as a platform for the government and the indigenous peoples to negotiate on an equal footing. Through this gradual reopening of dialogue among the diverse ethnic groups in Taiwan, the country can begin to move towards its vision of achieving reconciliation, co-existence, and co-prosperity among different ethnic groups. The Committee enables regular dialogue between the President and tribal representatives. Deputy Minister Afas mentioned that she herself served on the first and second terms of the committee and is deeply moved by what the Committee has achieved over the past three years in calling attention to the historical memory of diverse cultures. Additionally, the collective perspectives of the indigenous peoples have received more recognition and reverberation, enabling people to come together

  • Austronesian Forum Attended by Representatives from 14 Countries

    The Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP) met with the Austronesian Forum’s envoy representatives in Taiwan to hold the 2020 Executive Council meeting in Taipei today. The meeting was chaired by Executive Council Chairperson Icyang Parod. Delegates to the meeting all highly approved of the Forum’s accomplishments in various projects, and confirmed that the Forum’s general assembly will be held in the Republic of the Marshall Islands in the latter half of the following year. Chairperson Icyang stated that the Austronesian Forum is an international organization originally initiated and established by Taiwan and was later jointly reestablished by 12 countries in the Pacific region on August 1, 2018—the Indigenous Peoples’ Day of Taiwan. The Headquarters Office was subsequently established in the Republic of Palau on September 30, 2019, and routine Executive Council meetings are convened annually. However, the Executive Council meeting originally planned for June in Hawaii this year was moved back to Taiwan due to the COVID-19 pandemic and held on a smaller scale so as to comply with pandemic control measures. Chairperson Icyang pointed out that many important projects were completed in the past year due to the joint efforts of member countries. For example, the 2019 International Indigenous Economic Development Forum held in Taoyuan last December invited 29 speakers from 9 countries to exchange experiences and work together to improve the competitiveness of Austronesian industries. Furthermore, the 2020 Cultivation Program of Young Talents for International Affairs held this July in the Saviki tribe of Alishan Township, Chiayi County was participated by 29 trainees from Taiwan and 12 Austronesian countries, where participants engaged in the in-depth exchange and empowerment of young Austronesian talent. CIP Minister Icyang further noted that three of the attending countries this year—Papua New Guinea, Australia, and Canada—are first-time attendants of the Executive Council meeting. Of the three, Papua New Guinea has already formally applied to join the Forum as an official member. Contact: Sayun‧Tosu (specialist) Telepho
