Ainu Women’s Association has started up for practicalities

On 20 June, Ryoko Tahara, representative of the Ainu Women’s Association (AWA), had a meeting with two board members of the AWA in preparation for the Indigenous Art and Academic Event in Sapporo. The topic of the meeting focused on the establishment of a steering committee, which takes responsibility for practicalities, including fundraising, interpretation, publication of the programme and the abstract book, filming the event, registration card, venue, reception, refreshment, and banquet. They are very much looking forward to hosting the event in cooperation with the Northern Institute of Environmental and Minority Law at the University of Lapland, the Hugo Valentin Centre at Uppsala University, and the Centre for Environmental and Minority Policy Studies (CEMiPoS) in November and December 2017 in Sapporo.
