Taipei City with the rapid development of urban construction is the country’s political and economic center which creates and forms all various opportunities and became the driving force of urban and rural population migration. Aboriginal moved to the city from their homes to find development opportunities. However, life and social maladjustment phenomena have emerged under the relatively weak culture and competitive conditions. To this end, dedicated units are established to deal with various issues caused by differences in culture, lifestyle and other differences. And it is necessary.
On May 9, 1995, Taipei City government approved the proposal at the 808th municipal meetings to establish “Aboriginal Affairs Committee” and passed on the 3rd reading at the 11th Extraordinary Meeting for the 7th year on January 19th, 1996.
