Tao Tribe

The Tao tribe (more correctly spelled Dawu or 達悟族, and often referred to as the Yami (雅美族), the name given to them by the Japanese) are ethnically closer to the Philippines than Taiwan, and likely arrived from the former around 800 years ago. The Tao people refer to Orchid island as Pongso no Tao or “Island of the People.”
