The Lowland Aborigine constituency (Chinese: 平地原住民選舉區; pinyin: Píngdì Yuán Zhùmín Xuǎnjǔ Qū) is a multi-member constituency of the Legislative Yuan. Taiwanese indigenous people have elected representatives to reserved legislative seats since the 1970s.[1] Predecessors to both the Lowland and Highland Aborigine districts were established in 1994.[2] Since 2008 the Lowland Taiwanese indigenous elect three members to the Legislative Yuan. At its peak between 1998 and 2004, the constituency sent 4 members to the Legislative Yuan.

The district is dominated by the Amis ethnic group, with only one legislator (Chen Ying) ever elected from the Puyuma ethnic group.
