Description:
A New Partnership Between the Indigenous Peoples and the Government of Taiwan () is a treaty-like document signed in Ponso no Tao on 1999-09-10 by the representatives of the indigenous peoples of Taiwan and the then-presidential candidate Chen Shui-bian (who went on to win the 2000 presidential election for the Democratic Progressive Party).

The seven articles in the documents includes:
  1. Recognizing the inherent sovereignty of Taiwan’s Indigenous Peoples
  2. Promoting autonomy for Indigenous Peoples
  3. Concluding a land treaty with Taiwan’s Indigenous Peoples
  4. Reinstating traditional names of Indigenous communities and natural landmarks
  5. Recovering traditional territories of Indigenous communities and Peoples
  6. Recovering use of traditional natural resources and furthering the development of self-determination
  7. Providing legislative (parliamentary) representation for each Indigenous People


The document later became the official indigenous policy for the DPP Government. However, as the document was signed before Shui-bian Chen became the President, the efficacy of the document has been contested.

On 2002-10-19, Chen, as the head of state and government, reaffirmed the new partnership between indigenous nations and the Government of Taiwan in a ceremony with indigenous tribal representatives.
