25th Annual Ainu Culture and Human Rights Gathering
In 1986, then Prime Minister Nakasone stated that "since Japan is a homogeneous country, the intellectual level is quite high compared to America." We the Kanto Utari Association sent out an open letter to the prime minister, as his words are in the same spirit of the assimilation policies forced upon the Ainu from the Meiji era. In order prevent this event from being lost in historical memory, we have held this event since 1988. We would like to consider the future of the Ainu people, through a firm understanding of our past and present.
