About Sean Sherman
Chef Sean Sherman is the founder of “The Sioux Chef,” a corporation dedicated to revitalizing and reclaiming Native American cuisine. He is a member of the Ogalala Lakota Sioux tribe. His principal culinary aim has been on bringing indigenous foods systems like land stewardship and wild foods use to a fashionable culinary context.
His cafe Owamni in Minneapolis, MN options dishes that prioritize Indigenous-sourced food items indigenous to his location, and leaves out colonial elements like beef and hen to produce a “decolonized dining knowledge.” In 2017, he co-authored the cookbook The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen area.
As a result of his nonprofit NATIFS, he also co-started the Indigenous Food stuff Lab, a experienced Indigenous kitchen area and schooling middle dedicated to preserving Indigenous foods education and learning.
He was the receiver of a 2015 1st Peoples Fund Fellowship, the 2018 Bush Basis Fellowship, the Nationwide Center’s 2018 Initial American Entrepreneurship Award, the 2018 James Beard Award for Best American Cookbook and a 2019 James Beard Management Award.
