Coastal erosion is wiping out Isle de Jean Charles. But, the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw tribe of Native Americans who live there will remain together.

The “climate refugees” are preparing for an historic relocation.




Memories and traditions of a self-sufficient culture on Isle de Jean Charles will survive.

Assistant professor Dr. Heather Stone is recording and cataloguing customs and stories to help tribal members retain their identity.




Isle de Jean Charles residents plan to resettle in a new community, thanks to an almost $50 million federally funded project.

The relocation will be the first in the lower 48 states for a community displaced by environmental factors.
