Title
Veterans History Project Art Showcase: Operation Song & Jamie Fox
Summary
This special presentation highlighted the work of Operation Song, a Tennessee based not-for-profit program that pairs veterans, active duty military and their families with professional songwriters to help them tell their stories. Since 2012, Operation Song has written more than 700 songs with veterans of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. The event concluded with a performance by Jamie Fox, a Metis fiddler of the Aaniih and Nakoda tribes. She performed selections from the songs of her home, Fort Belknap Reservation of Northern Montana. The songs of the Native country are derived from a mixture of Celtic, French, Native American cultures and some other popular Metis tunes.
