Relocating A Village
"In as little as 10 years, the whole village will be swallowed up by a torrent of water from the Ninglick River, and an ancient way of life will be erased.
...Officials acknowledge the urgency of the situation, but the cost and complexity of relocating a village have proved daunting. It would require potentially hundreds of millions of dollars and the coordination of several state and federal agencies, and no agency or politician has dared to take the lead. By default, the Newtok people have been left to save themselves."
