Back by popular demand, our Culture Through Cuisine series is restarting in person at Owamni by The Sioux Chef! The recent recipient of the prestigious James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant, Owamni features food and flavors that revitalize Native American cuisine. Using primarily ingredients that are native to North America, founder and CEO Chef Sean Sherman taps into his Oglala Lakota roots to craft a truly unique dining experience that reclaims an important culinary culture long buried and often inaccessible. Join Global Minnesota in this celebration of Native American culture and cuisine on July 14. As part of the program, a chef from Owamni will talk through the specially-prepared menu and provide background on Owamni and indigenous cuisine.
The Sioux Chef team works to make indigenous foods more accessible to as many communities as possible. Sean Sherman, Oglala Lakota, born in Pine Ridge, SD, has been cooking across the US and World for the last 30 years. His main culinary focus has been on the revitalization and awareness of indigenous foods systems in a modern culinary context. As co-owner of the company The Sioux Chef, Dana Thompson, lineal descendant of the Wahpeton-Sisseton and Mdewakanton Dakota tribes and lifetime Minnesota native, has been working within the food sovereignty movement for the past six years.
