(I'll add the chinese character in later on)

Interesting that the aboriginies in Taiwan don't like being callsed Gaoshan (高山), but rather Yuanzhumin (原住民). Regardless, as Taiwan is not a part of China, they don't really count anyway.

Whether Taiwan is part of China is still debatable.. and is not definite. The aborigine in Taiwan's proper ethnic name is called "GaoShan ethnic". The 'yuanzhumin' is the direct chinese translation for 'aborigines". It means the "original dweller".

I've only heard from TI-supporters that Taiwanese aboriginies don't like the term Gaoshan 高山. However, I've yet to hear any 高山人 / 原住民 make the same claim. As a matter of fact, a cousin of mine in Taiwan is dating a 高山人 / 原住民 girl and I asked her about this and she just shrugged it off as if she could care less.

As for Ludahai, we all know you are a TI-supporting extremists, there is no need for you to remind us of that constantly.

isn't the Gaoshan classification too broad?  There is many Gaoshan "tribes" that have almost no cultural or linguistic relation with each other.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


THat is true. There are at this time 12 officially recognized tripes (I believe one or two of them are NOT Gaoshan but are Pingpu) and there are at least 11 more separately identified languages that are not official recognized by Taiwan's government.

Welcome to CHF, Khamba! Tibetan history is an area that should be discussed a little more here, except that most of us know so little about it. Let me refer you to an earlier thread on this board for info and different views about Tibetans in China today: http://www.chinahist...p?showtopic=485

They exclude the Yue. That's why I know the Vietnamese fought back to gain their ethincity and nationality. If Vietnam was of China, it would have been Annamese, no Yue.

Like2learn, the "Yue" no longer exist as a distinct people. There are some minorities in the PRC that may be descended from the Yue, though. To equate Vietnam with the Yue is like trying to equate China with the Qin.

Quick question..how do you pronounce "Yue"?

Is it Yoo or Yoo-eh?
