Chef Sean Sherman | The Sioux Chef

“Our ancestors understood how to live in balance with the natural world. Indigenous foods are the original foods of this continent. It’s important we recognize that and start celebrating those foods.”

He aims to tackle the root causes of deep,persistent problems – not just apply Band-Aid’s to the symptoms of health disparities and economic and environmental exploitation.

By reconnecting Native Americans with traditional foodways to improve health, promoting economic development, establishing food sovereignty, and preserving tribal history and culture across artificial colonial boundaries, and through development of a new food system based around cultivation and incorporation of healthy, wild, culturally appropriate, traditional ingredients and agriculture.

Chef Sean Sherman is empowering Native people to use the power of their history and culture to counter the multigenerational impacts of colonialism and dispossession, and to combat systemic cultural genocide.

The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen

Here is real food—our indigenous American fruits and vegetables, the wild and foraged ingredients, game and fish. Locally sourced, seasonal, “clean” ingredients and nose-to-tail cooking are nothing new to Sean Sherman, the Oglala Lakota chef and founder of The Sioux Chef.

In Chef Sean Sherman breakout book, The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen, Sherman shares his approach to creating boldly seasoned foods that are vibrant, healthful, at once elegant and easy.
