The Ainu Apukita was invented by Daniel Martinez as an alternative to write the Ainu language. It is an abugida based on the Latin alphabet and partly inspired by Fraser alphabet. It also has elements of Cyrillic, some Asian abugidas and a little Japanese (in its letter styles). The name "apukita" is a distortion of the word "abugida".
These symbols are used at the beginning of a word which starts with a vowel or when the next sylabble starts with an A.
The circles represent consonant letters.
Each consonant has an inherent [e].

One day, as I was setting out traveling toward the source of the (river's) water, the walnut wood post was struck as at the water's source a little man all by himself was erecting a walnut wood plank. He was standing there now bent over at the waist and now standing up straight over and over again.

The author will be glad if a native speaker of Ainu could see this.
