Sean Sherman, on the terrace of his restaurant Owamni, has been named a recipient of the Julia Child Award for his trailblazing work with Native cuisine.

Chef Sean Sherman, who launched James Beard Award-wining restaurant Owamni with business partner Dana Thompson, was named Tuesday as the ninth recipient of the Julia Child Award.

The annual award comes with a grant for $50,000 from the Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts. The grant will go toward Sherman's nonprofit, NāTIFS, and the Indigenous Food Lab, according to a statement from Child's Foundation.

With Thompson, Sherman co-founded North American Traditional Indigenous Food Systems, or NāTIFS. The organization launched the Indigenous Food Lab, a professional indigenous kitchen and training center, which recently opened to the public at the Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis.
