The Japanese Ainu and Akan kotan
January 2010

The Japanese (JA-P-AN) Ainu are an indigenous people of Japan who should really be called the 'Anu'.


Genetic Research
The predominant presence of the Y-Haplogroup D among the Ainu suggest that as a people they are much closer to those of the Andaman and Nicobar islands. Tibetans also have a strong link to Y-haplogroup D. Haplogroups D and E both show the "YAP haplogroup polymorphism", which basically suggests that both haplogroups D and E have a common ancestor. Africans feature significantly on haplogroup E. Haplogroups D and E are the only ones on that side of the genetic tree, having no other groups descending from them. Haplogroup CF on the other hand ends the C-line with C but extends down from F. Most Indo-Europeans have significant amounts of haplogroups F and below, while the oldest human groups on the planet have haplogroups C, D and E.

I would like to suggest that the Ainu have a strong Sirian strain as part of their make-up. They are a type-1 group, whose spirituality recognizes the existence of nature-spirit hierarcies and is shamanic in nature.

I brought up the Ainu because of lake Akan (Akan ko), which is a beautiful lake in Hokkaido, right by the town of Akankohan/Akankotan. I found this lake while carrying out research on the Ainu. The word Akankotan itself is interesting, if looked at from the perspective of Sirian-Reptilian language analysis: A-K-AN-KO/KU-TT-AN. So a number of Sirian and Reptilian related sounds, which I have previously written about in The Akan book.
