Photo by Katie Orlinsky @katieorlinsky | Reese John plays with his slingshot on a piling from a recently demolished home in Newtok, Alaska. Just a few dozen feet away are crumbling cliffs of permafrost falling into the Ninglik River. Erosion has already gobbled up approximately one mile of Newtok’s land, and the entire village is sinking as the permafrost beneath the ground thaws. The demolished homes leave behind a playground of construction materials for local children. As much as the kids I met seemed to enjoy climbing and jumping all over these structures, they also made sure to tell me multiple times about the brand-new playground they were going to have very soon. Nine miles upriver is the site of a new village, Mertarvik, where the entire Newtok community will be relocating this fall. Newtok is the first village in Alaska that has already begun relocation as a result of climate change—pioneering a process that many other Alaskan villages may soon undergo.
