Since that time, he published The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen with Beth Dooley, and created the North American Traditional Indigenous Food Systems (NATIFS) non-profit. He has shared his cooking skills and knowledge with the James Beard Foundation and the Culinary Institute of America and plans to open the successfully crowd-funded Sioux Chef restaurant in the next year. The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen was recently awarded the 2018 James Beard Foundation Book Award.
