It is difficult to pinpoint
exactly when the Taiwanese first arrived in the State of Minnesota. In
1960, about 32 students from Taiwan were studying in the
Twin Cities. The Formosan American Club of Minnesota was founded six
years later. With 114 members, it became the predecessor of the
Taiwanese Association of America-Minnesota Chapter. The Taiwanese
Foundation was also established in 1966. Since then, the Taiwanese
community has grown from about 100 people some 35 years ago to several
hundred people today.
