Abstract: The Ainu, the indigenous inhabitants of what is now (and has been since the late nineteenth century) the northernmost main island of Japan – Hokkaido – today face a major problem of identity. Effectively colonized by the majority Japanese, their population diluted through extensive inter-marriage with that majority community, and frequently denigrated as backward (along with Japan’s other significant minorities of Okinawans, Koreans and some would argue the Buraku people), the claiming or re claiming of membership in the Ainu community is fraught with difficulties.
