2009 COMMUNITY SPIRIT AWARD HONOREE

 

“The songs I write are all written from the heart and I believe are good messages for the people," said Theresa Kenkiokoktha Fox, a 2009 Community Spirit Award honoree and a singer/songwriter." - Theresa FoxDelia Cook, who nominated her, says of Theresa, “Her music brings good medicine to our people; her songs are an uplifting and a truly ephemeral experience. It is as if the ancestors are whispering these songs to her to give back to the people. They lift the spirits of all who join in and share their voices, and also those who take them in and listen. Her songs are building a web, between our generation and between our communities. I believe these songs are leaving an imprint that will be carried on for generations to come.
