In the year 2000 the Puyuma numbered 9,606 This was approximately 24% of Taiwan's total indigenous population, making them the sixth-largest indigenous group1 The Puyuma speak the Puyuma language, as well as Mandarin and Taiwanese Hokkien

The name "Puyuma" means "unity" or "concord," and was originally the autonym of the speakers of the Nanwang dialect2 Zeitoun and Cauquelin 2006 also note that the word Puyuma can be analyzed as pu'-uma, which means "to send to the field"
