More information:

    The Tsouic language has traditionally been divided into the northern branch (Tsou) and the southern branch (Kanakanabu and Saaroa). As for the group identity, the Kanakanabu people, together with the Saaroa people, had long been classified as part of the Tsou nationality in Taiwan. However, the Kanakanabu and the Saaroa have been officially recognized as two independent ethnic groups in June 26, 2014.
