Sean Sherman, better known as The Sioux Chef, has reached his $100,000 funding goal on Kickstarter. His project, which received a nice shout-out from the New York Times, is to open the first all-indigenous restaurant highlighting the native cuisines of the upper Midwest.
The project reached its goal with a full two weeks left to go. The team updated backers, via Kickstarter:
“Our team has been screaming, texting, high-fiving, fainting, laugh-crying, and group hugging…we are in a state of disbelief and euphoria!!…We have two more weeks of fundraising. The more we raise, the less funds we will need in traditional financing options, and the less risk there will be for us. Two more weeks to get the word out, two more weeks to make new friends and to raise awareness of the importance of these foods that are beautiful, delicious medicine.”
