Were the Ezo people the Ainu? It seems so, though a debate continues over whether the Emishi and the Ezo were the same people. The term “shogun,” given in the late eighth century to the leading military official in Japan, meant “barbarian-conqueror” and the defeated barbarians were people who evolved into the Ainu. Ainu today have suggested that many of their ancestors were not forced to leave Honshu for Ezo Island. Meanwhile, those who stayed on Honshu were eventually absorbed into the general population.

In many ways, traditional Ainu culture resembled the culture of other native peoples in similar climates. Ainu had developed clothing from animal skins and shoes from seal skins, made homes that would protect them from the cold of winter and evolved ceremonies and celebrations and decorations for the human body. Anyone interested in the Ainu people must have wondered what their culture was like before it was influenced by Wajin. The question is unanswerable, of course, but also not very meaningful, because throughout many, many centuries, different peoples interacted.

The Ainu and the Wajin In the early days of contact, most Wajin considered Ainu uncivilized. ” About the same time, a western observer described Ainu as “ almost servile,” unlike the warriors who practiced “savage cruelty” in ages past. Both images, “servile” and “savage cruelty” are far from representative of Ainu culture. In the old days, Ainu fought other Ainu and later fought Japanese, but there is no evidence of excessive cruelty. If servility appeared later, it was in response to the increasing Wajin domination of Hokkaido.
