The Ainu people are an indigenous people of Japan who primarily live in Hokkaido. During the Meiji era, the Japanese government colonized the Ainu people, banning the language, cultural practices, and taking their land. There are now very few, if any, people who are purely Ainu, with only a handful of individuals diligently working to pass along the culture.
