|The Indigenous Ainu of Japan and the Northern Territories Dispute (2008)
This book re-examines the territorial dispute between Japan and Russia, the so-called “Northern Territories” issue, by reinterpreting the role of the Indigenous Ainu of Japan. In studying Ainu history and historiography, one finds that the long-standing emphasis on Wajin-based legitimacy of rule and the annexation of northern areas has been forgotten in what amounts to a historical amnesia concerning the role and status of the Ainu.
Focusing on Ainu understandings of local, regional/national and international historical events underscores the importance of de-nationalizing history by integrating the important perspectives of Indigeneity. The preponderance of nation-based studies has seriously inhibited the analysis of historical phenomena involving Indigenous peoples. This study offers a new perspective on the history of this important dispute and illustrates the importance of incorporating Indigenous perspectives and experience within traditional academic studies.
