Description

Speculations about the racial and linguistic origins of the Ainu began in the latter half of the 19th century, and one of the more persistent notions was that the Ainu were a lost tribe of Europoid origin. This set traces the course of the controversy sparked by Pierre Naert's 1958 dissertation.
