    In a Taiwan first, township in Nantou asks to be delisted as ‘indigenous area’ (2018/12/06)

    Yuchi township in Nantou could become the first in Taiwan to lose its legal designation as an "indigenous area." Yesterday the township council passed a resolution asking the central government to remove the status. The government's Council of Indigenous Peoples says it will continue to communicate with townspeople over the matter.

    Back in June, most of Yuchi Township had been designated the ancestral land of the Thao people. Residents of the township lodged a strong protest, saying that the Thao people were only a small fraction of the town's population. Locals fear the new designation would give disproportionate power to the Thao people, giving the 300-person Thao council control over local infrastructure projects.
