THE LOST AINU OF JAPAN
While researching some tribal curiosities of ours, República came across an interesting story about the original people of Japan–The Ainu. A little Wikipedia information tells us that the Ainu date back all the way to 1200 CE. Of course, as is the story with most of the indigenous population of the Earth, Ainu culture was eventually marginalized by civilization and imposing government. To make that idea even more apparent, it wasn't until 2008 that the Ainu were officially recognized by Japan as the original inhabitants of the land! Look closely as, not only the story, but the pictures, speak volumes about the similarities between the Ainu and the other native tribes of The Americas and Africa!
