Excellent Article on Issue of Ainu Remains at Asia Rights Journal

On the same topic as our August 3rd blog entry "Thoughts Regarding Bones/Remains/Mausoleum", there is an excellent article entitled "Ainu People Call for Return of Indigenous Remains" at the blog of AISA RIGHTS Journal of Human Rights, Media and Society in Asia and the Pacific. Very informative and definitely worth a read:

Ainu Elder Ogawa Ryukichi and others outside the Hokkaido University ossuary
(from Asia Rights Journal article)

On a separate note regarding the translation of 納骨堂, interestingly enough the Asia Rights Journal article goes with "ossuary."
