Jim NorthrupShinob Jep, Jim Northrup’s bitingly funny play parodying the game of Jeopardy from an Anishinabe point of view, was broadcast as a radio play last Sunday on KFAI’s First Nations Radio program. Rhiana Yazzie first interviews Northrup, Ojibwe elder, humorist, and author of several books and the syndicated column The Fond du Lac Follies. Northrup talks about his current writing projects and reads several poems. He also discusses losing and regaining the Ojibwe language, which he uses to introduce himself. The last third of the show features the performance, recorded at the Walker Community Church in Minneapolis by actors Cochise Anderson, Rafael, Joy Rivera, Gary Ten Bear, and George Keller.

Jim Northrup is the author of The Rez Road Follies and Walking the Rez Road.
