Kasha Clay and her family are members of the United Houma Nation, a Native American tribe in the Louisiana bayou.

With time running out, Kasha, a sociology student, has partnered with the National Academy of Sciences to record the oral histories of tribal elders to ensure that the loss of land won't mean the loss of her culture.
