INSIGHT: Assemblyman's Ainu remarks ignore long history of discrimination

ainu discrimination By KENTARO YAMAYOSHI/ Staff Writer SAPPORO--A Sapporo assemblyman infuriated indigenous people in Hokkaido, contradicted the central and local governments’ position and offended his colleagues so much that they demanded his resignation. But Yasuyuki Kaneko, who implied that Ainu people are cheating the welfare system, has refused to apologize or retract his comments. Experts say the assemblyman’s remarks show a complete ignorance of not only cultural ethnicity issues but also the prolonged discrimination against Ainu people that led to the need for such assistance programs.

ainu creation myth The wagtail arrived and was confronted with a mess. He was unsure how he should proceed. After much deliberation, the wagtail fluttered his wings, dragging mud and sand from the waters. He tramped it down with his feet and tail, creating dry land. Soon islands began to emerge from the ocean. Even today, the wagtail is still at work, beating the ground with his tail. The world that Kamui and the water wagtail had created was so beautiful that the animals that lived in the sky begged Kamui to allow them to live there.
