Indigenous education, social pedagogy and cultural revitalization: The case of Ainu in Japan

Presented by Nanako Iwasa, Hokkaido University, Japan

The Ainu people have brought about a change in their lives by making efforts to restore their culture since the Law for the Promotion of the Ainu Culture was passed in Japan in 1997. The social and educational context also changed dramatically in 2008 when the Legislature passed a resolution that recognized the Ainu as "indigenous people of Japan”.

Currently, preparations are made for the National Ainu Museum that will open in 2020. This presentation will discuss the main issues faced by the Ainu people in this new context, and will describe some educational projects aiming at cultural revitalization, local development and empowerment.
