Abstract: Labor standards and employment rights comprise an essential component of sustainable development, and one that is especially important to the Arctic. All of the polar regions of the Arctic states contain significant indigenous populations. Due to global demand for non-renewable energy resources, certain Arctic regions have experienced (and will continue to experience) unparalleled economic development connected with the extraction of such resources. Unfortunately, it is not always the case that local and indigenous people benefit as much as they should as a result of this development. Truly sustainable development in the Arctic would also provide such natives with a means to benefit from the economic development around them in a lasting way. This study will primarily examine the case of the United States and its Arctic state of Alaska, and how American and Alaskan legal practices granting certain economic preferences to natives have contributed to the notion of sustainable development
