Adafruit NativeAmericanHeritageMonth 2022 blog

Sean Sherman is a chef who is focused on revitalizing Indigenous food systems within a modern culinary context. He is the founder of The Sioux Chef, Tatanka Truck, North American Traditional Indigenous Food Systems, Indigenous Food Labs, and Owamni.

Sherman also wrote The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen with Beth Dooley and The Thanksgiving Tale We Tell Is a Harmful Lie. As a Native American, I’ve Found a Better Way to Celebrate the Holiday for TIME:

Many of my indigenous brothers and sisters refuse to celebrate Thanksgiving, protesting the whitewashing of the horrors our ancestors went through, and I don’t blame them. But I have not abandoned the holiday. I have just changed how I practice it.

The thing is, we do not need the poisonous “pilgrims and Indians” narrative. We do not need that illusion of past unity to actually unite people today. Instead, we can focus simply on values that apply to everybody: togetherness, generosity and gratitude. And we can make the day about what everybody wants to talk and think about anyway: the food.

People may not realize it, but what every person in this country shares, and the very history of this nation, has been in front of us the whole time. Most of our Thanksgiving recipes are made with indigenous foods: turkey, corn, beans, pumpkins, maple, wild rice and the like. We should embrace this.
