We buried Jim Northrup on Friday, August 5th, 2016. By we, I mean a community buried him. Jim was a boarding school survivor, a warrior in Vietnam, a cop on the reservation, a poet and an author of multiple books, a husband, father and grandfather. He was revered by many and he was a true friend. He was a world traveler and he chose to stay in the community he was born in in Sawyer, Minnesota.
