In 2002, the Center of Aboriginal Studies of National Chengchi University in Taiwan corrected this error when they edited the indigenous languages textbooks. Therefore, that year Sakizaya language was designated both as a Chilai and Amis sublanguage. On 17 January 2007, the Taiwan government recognised the Sakizaya community as the thirteenth distinct indigenous ethnic group.
940 people are registered as Sakizaya. They live in the Takubuwan, Sakur, Maifor and Kaluluwan communities. Thousands of others are still registered as Amis. Around half of Amis politicians in Hualian, the biggest Amis city, are actually Sakizaya.
