The Ainu people are the original native Japanese. In Japan, they occupy a position similar to the American Indians in the US. Unlike their American counterparts, however, the Ainu are not worried about "cultural appropriation"-- they enjoy it when other people celebrate their unique (and bear-oriented) culture. They don't mind showing it off right next to a Coke machine... or dressing me up in traditional Ainu attire and having me slay a wooden bear for the camera.
