Harukor: An Ainu Woman’s Tale
Honda Katsuichi (au); Kyoko Selden (tr)
Reconstructs the life of an Ainu woman living on the northern island of Japan over 500 years ago. Harukor’s story, created from surviving oral accounts of Ainu life & culture, takes place in the centuries before the mainland Japanese nearly destroyed the way of life depicted here. The fictional Harukor tells us of her childhood, her adolescence, & her motherhood. She describes festivals, weddings, childbirth & midwifery, traditional healing methods, battles, & funerals. Her story is followed by the story of her oldest son, Pasekur, which end by foreshadowing an early Ainu rebellion against Japanese encroachment. “A unique portrait of Ainu gods & humans, of matters sacred & mundane, & of the distinctive Ainu respect for nature’s bounty.” Illustrations.
