In His Own Words -- Ahren Kenwood's Japanese Internship

As a second year law student, I have been given the opportunity to work in Sapporo, Japan this summer.

I will be interning at the Hokkaido University Center for Ainu and Indigenous working with Dr. Teruki Tsunemoto and his colleague, Prof. Ken-ichi Ochiai.  As part of the internship, I will be doing translation, basic research and promotion of Ainu heritage and culture.  I also am currently writing an article on progressing Ainu rights within international human rights law, and I hope to have that piece published in a law review at a later date.
