Indigenous Peoples and Foreigners

Map:Indigenous Peoples and Foreigners
Before the mid-16th century, the indigenous society in Taiwan had been stable for a long time. However, with the emergence of trade in East Asian waters, merchant organizations from China, Japan, the Netherlands and Spain all came to Taiwan. Their frequent encounters with the indigenous peoples naturally influenced the indigenous society. In addition to simply trading with foreigners, some indigenous groups also worked with certain foreigners as collaborative partners, while some even adopted foreign religions as one way to expand their powers.
