Native America Calling: Tall Paul’s Story of Jim Thorpe
Friday, November 18, 2022

Tall Paul’s Story of Jim Thorpe
Everything changed for hip-hop artist Tall Paul (enrolled member of the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe and Oneida) when he first heard about iconic Sac and Fox athlete Jim Thorpe.

The more Paul learned the more strength he drew from the story of Thorpe’s against-the-odds achievements. He took that story and embarked on a journey—both literally and artistically.

That journey culminates in the new album called “The Story of Jim Thorpe.” Friday on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce hears from Paul about the touchstones and inspirations for the project.
