Ekvn-Yefolecv is an intentional ecovillage community of Indigenous Maskoke persons who, after 180 years of having been forcibly removed from traditional Alabama homelands, have returned to practice linguistic, cultural and ecological sustainability. Designed as a holistic decolonization paradigm shift, residents of the ecovillage are manifesting an off-grid income-sharing community with natural building construction and renewable energy. We are revitalizing our language through an immersion school, reintroducing threatened animal species (namely buffalo and sturgeon), and growing hierloom crops to decolonize our diets. Ekvn-Yefolecv exemplifies departure from extractive economies and models a Just Transition to more equitable and culturally/linguistically sustainable lifeways.
