Show Notes

LEANNE BETASAMOSAKE SIMPSON of the Michii Saagiig Nishnaabeg, is an acclaimed scholar, author and musician. Her books challenge long standing literary conventions, as she brilliantly draws from ancient Anishnaabe oral storytelling traditions in ways that reimagines what a novel is and can be.. Among her latest books is Noopiming, a story that centers around a mythical being trapped in ice, who relies on 7 beings on the outside, each of whom make up a different faculty of the creatures body.. To further expand upon the ideas found in Noopiming, Leanne took seven of the poems from within its pages and crafted her latest album, Theory of Ice.. *contains bonus material not found in radio broadcast..
