The Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP; Chinese: 原住民族委員會; pinyin: Yuánzhù Mínzú Wěiyuánhuì), formerly known as the Council of Aboriginal Affairs, is a ministry-level body under the Executive Yuan in the Republic of China. It was established to provide a central point of government supervision for indigenous affairs, as well as a central interface for the Taiwan's indigenous community to interact with the government:
Among its most visible responsibilities are the power it has to grant recognized status to indigenous tribes of Taiwan. The tribes must apply with a petition and various pieces of evidence of their legitimacy.
The council was originally established on 1 December 1996 as the Council of Aboriginal Affairs. On 1 July 1999, the Aboriginal Affairs Commission of the Taiwan Provincial Government was incorporated into the council. The council also took over the management of the Indigenous Peoples Cultural Park from the commission. On 4 January 2002, the Legislative Yuan approved the amendments to the council and on 25 March in the same year, the council was renamed to Council of Indigenous Peoples.
