Mr. Michael Yon

Many people think that the Taiwanese belong to the same ethnic group as the mainland Chinese. Not only ordinary people, but also scholars and researchers studying Taiwan labor under this false impression. They believe what they’ve heard, i.e., that 2% of the Taiwanese population are aborigines, 13% are natives of the mainland who fled to Taiwan with Chiang Kai-Shek in 1949 (and their descendants), and the remaining 85% are natives of the mainland who arrived in Taiwan prior to World War II. Therefore, they reach the conclusion that 98% of Taiwanese are Han Chinese.

This impression, however incorrect, is widely embraced. And it does not help that Taiwanese born in the postwar period were taught that they are Han Chinese. But this is completely wrong from the viewpoint of the genetic make-up of the Taiwanese. Dr. Lin Mali, professor of hematology at Mackay Memorial Hospital in Taipei discovered that the genetic make-up of the Taiwanese is completely different from that of the Han Chinese.

How was this difference occur? Dr. Lin Jianliang elaborates the historical process. Read Dr. Lin’s essay.
