Description
 
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.
