Griffith Honors Forum Lecture

Griffith Honors Forum Lecture

Sean Sherman, known as The Sioux Chef, has dedicated his career to supporting and promoting Indigenous food systems and Native food sovereignty.

Chef Sean founded North American Traditional Indigenous Food Systems (NATIFS), a non-profit dedicated to addressing the economic and health crises affecting Native communities by reestablishing Native foodways. NATIFS, and its Indigenous Food Lab, are working to build and support an Indigenous infrastructure that promotes the creation and maintenance of healthy food access throughout Indigenous communities. Sean and his team imagine a new North American food system that generates wealth and improves health in Native communities through food-related enterprises.

Join Chef Sean, 2022 James Beard Foundation Award Winner and author of The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen, for a virtual conversation about his activism and advocacy in helping reclaim and celebrate the rich culinary heritage of Indigenous communities around the world. The livestream with Chef Sean can be viewed on location at the Oscar Larson Performing Arts Center.
