Ainu: Engaging the Power of Dialogue
Ukaji Shizue once worked to improve the lives of Japan's indigenous Ainu people. An Ainu herself, she had moved to Tokyo to escape discrimination and eventually became involved in uniting the Ainu people. After some setbacks, she returned to her home, Hokkaido Prefecture, to talk to her fellow Ainu about the difficulties they face and to seek answers through dialogue. Now, at 89 years old, she is starting a new journey.
