Project Description

My name is Elia. When I first learned about Ainu at university, I was shocked that such a wonderful language and its cultural heritage was being left in a state of torpor and that all initiatives to save the language had failed. I want to make a difference by teaching the language and culture of the Ainu and I want everybody to realise that we can all make a difference, no matter where we are in the world, no matter how far a culture may appear to us. Ainu is a special part of the world we cannot afford to lose.
