Sioux Chef launches Kickstarter to open Twin Cities restaurant serving indigenous foods


A few years ago, chef Sean Sherman left his job running the kitchen at Common Roots Cafe in Uptown to start his own business.

Sherman, who is Oglala Lakota and was born on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, wanted to cook the food of his ancestors.

At the time, he was interested in starting a restaurant, but started with a food truck. Since then, Sherman, aka Sioux Chef, has been all over local and national news and has brought his ideas to local indigenous people as well as a broader audience. His food truck, Tatanka Truck, is a runaway success. His company has been teaching classes to indigenous communities about what their people ate before fry bread and other fatty foods that they learned to eat after Europeans arrived. The company, called Sioux Chef, also has been catering and working lots of events.
