A Documentary of the Importance of Elders and Family in Native American Culture - By Kaylin Webster
The fact remains that we are still here. Many have attempted to annihilate and assimilate our communities, but little is known by others, and we have managed to be as one. Each community that we represent has multiplied and gained strength through teaching, love and support , from the elderly to the youth.
We are the keepers of the earth as long as the youth continue to carry the seed of their parents and grandparents. As long as we teach the new generations, we will continue. As long as we have children, we will share our stories and knowledge and pass the seed to future generations.
We are planting the endless seed and it continues to manifest the talent like this movie that captures a wonderful glimpse of “Our Community”.
This is the talented work of Kaylin Webster from the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indian Tribe. Kaylin said; “this was a project that I started during my last year of school to present as a final project. I had been living in New York for the past four years and I wanted to go back home and document familial stories as a tool for self-exploration and historical preservation. I learned so much during this time and am still learning. I studied film, and I only care about telling honest and underrepresented stories. My parents are Mark and Elaine Webster. My grandparents are Emily Pearce and Kenneth Loatman, and Irene Cuff and Walter Webster.”
We will all be waiting for more!
