The influx of Han Chinese immigrants caused the population in Taiwan to increase dramatically, and interpersonal relationships gradually became closer and more complex. As a result, problems related to the distribution of resources and profits began to emerge, and various forms of cooperation and conflict unfolded between the Han Chinese immigrants and the local indigenous communities. While the causes of these confrontations were complicated and diverse, the core issue was centered on land. In addition, Taiwan during the pre-Qing Dynasty was a profit-driven society, with more men than women, resulting in a surplus of single men.
