The Ta Chia-Hsi Revolt of 1731-32 was a major aboriginal revolt on Taiwan, which saw the Taokas tribe take up arms against the Qing authorities following a series of issues with the corvee labor policy. The Taokas swept southward and were joined by other plains aboriginal groups, stopping to lay siege to the walled city of Chang-hua. The revolt ended following the Qing enlisting the help of the An-li tribe and Green Standard troops from the south.
