Help Fund America's First Indigenous Restaurant

Your Good Karma for the day is calling.

This will be short because everything I have to say is much better said in the expose here by Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl, but: if you're looking for the coolest thing you can do today, it's funding The Sioux Chef Kickstarter.

Why? Let me count the ways:

  1. It supports America's first ever restaurant focusing on Indigenous and Native American foods. 
  2. It's hyper local and sustainable. 
  3. The price point is killer. 
  4. Could there be a more clever restaurant name? (NO. Be honest).
  5. This is the trendiest way possible for you to feed your orthorexia (looking at you Paleos/Vegans/Vegetarians/Locovores).
  6. It doesn't make up for centuries of cultural whitewashing, but it is a step in the right direction.

I encourage all of you to take your spare $5 (or more!) and trot on over to The Sioux Chef Kickstarter to support this amazing, amazing idea. The Twin Cities already have an amazing food scene; let's help them have a respectful, responsible one too.
