Ainu Spirits Singing

The Living World of Chiri Yukie's 'Ainu Shin'yoshu'

Sarah M. Strong (author)

ISBN: 9780824835125

Publication Date: Oct 2011

Format: Hardback

The Ainu, a people native to northeastern Asia, stand out for the exceptional scope and richness of their oral performance traditions. Yet despite this cultural wealth, nothing has appeared in English on the subject in over thirty years. Sarah Strong’s Ainu Spirits Singing breaks this decades-long silence with a nuanced study and English translation of Chiri Yukie’s Ainu Shin’yoshu, the first written transcription of Ainu oral narratives by an ethnic Ainu.
