What happens when a language is forgotten?  Can our ancestors hear our prayers in English when we struggle to know their tongue?  The indigenous Lenape language is just a few years away from extinction: ‘Lenape’ translates as ‘original people’.  America’s mother tongue is struggling to catch its breath. 

Kaylin Webster is a young creator – the byproduct of a nurse and a hometown funeral director. She grew up running through South Jersey fields and dirt roads with an imagination that manifested in New York City.
