The designation of the FRPAC as the corporation to implement cultural promotion activities provides both for increased Ainu participation in policy governance and for an increased flow of resources, over which Ainu have a greater degree of control.
This careful wording and distinction is similar to the careful parsing of language in the Law for the Promotion of Ainu Culture (LPAC), which does not reference the Ainu as indigenous, and a supplementary resolution passed after the LPAC that called for the government to "make efforts to disseminate the knowledge about Ainu traditions, including the Indigenous nature of the Ainu, which is a historical fact": cited in FRPAC, note 50, p.
The FRPAC is also regularly offering courses to train Ainu-language instructors.
