Lloa is a group of Austronesian indigenous Formosan people living in the southern plain of Taiwan. They have lived through the Dutch colonization of Taiwan, as well as the Manchurian occupation during the Qing Dynasty. The city of Chi-Lloa was named after the people, but was changed to Chiayi after the failure of their resistance to Chinese occupation in the 16th century due to the Manchurian conquest of China. The resistance had caused the genocide of much of the population, though many of them, especially women, changed their identity and were forced to marry other people groups.
