Taiwan is home to over 23 million people. A little over 2% (around 560,000) are Taiwanese aborigines. Taiwanese aborigines came to Taiwan thousands of years ago. They used to live all over Taiwan. But in the 1600s, people from China and Europe began coming to the island. They fought with the aborigines for control of the land. Now, Taiwanese aborigines mostly live on the island's east coast and in the central mountains.
There are 16 different groups of Taiwanese aborigines. They all have their own customs, festivals, and language. The largest of these 16 groups is the Amis, with a little over 200,000 people. From the map, you can see the Amis live in the central part of Taiwan's east coast. The map also has information about other groups.
