Indigenous Desettlement Corps

Alaska is on the frontlines of forced climate migration in the U.S. Remote Indigenous communities are being forced to make impossible decisions about how to continue existing. Introducing renewable energy infrastructural loops shared between neighboring villages, along traditional transportation trails, this proposal offers rural citizens in remote regions a second chance at the New Deal through a phased relocation from static settlement nodes towards fluid de-settled pathways, creating systems of support and self-preservation within historically disenfranchised Indigenous communities. The Indigenous Desettlement Corps seeks to undo a portion of colonial harm, reframing the act of relocation as an act of de-settlement, de-colonization and de-carbonization.
