It is one of the moribund languages of the modern world. It is spoken spoken by members of the Ainu ethnic group on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido.
Until the twentieth century, Ainu languages were also spoken throughout the southern half of the island of Sakhalin and by small numbers of people in the Kuril Islands. All but the Hokkaido language are extinct, with the last speaker of Sakhalin Ainu having died in 1994, and Hokkaido Ainu is moribund, though there are ongoing attempts to revive it.
Ainu, for the meantime, has no generally accepted genealogical relationship to any other language family.
Ainu, for me, should be one of the official languages of Japan. That's all.
