Northwest Territorial Imperative

The Northwest Territorial Imperative is a white separatist idea popularized since the 1980s within white nationalist and white supremacist groups in the United States. According to it, adherents of these groups are encouraged to relocate to a five-state region of the Northwestern United States — viz., Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, and Western Montana. Northern California, Northwestern Colorado, Northern Utah, Alaska, British Columbia and Alberta are sometimes also included. The intent is to eventually declare the region an "Aryan" homeland.
