Hoklo Taiwanese (Chinese: 閩南裔臺灣人) are a major ethnic group in Taiwan whose ancestry is wholly or partially Hoklo. Being Taiwanese of Han origin, they are generally bilingual in Taiwanese Mandarin and Taiwanese Hokkien. Most descend from the Hoklo people of Quanzhou or Zhangzhou in Fujian, China. The term as commonly understood signifies those whose ancestors immigrated to Taiwan before 1949.
