Sean Sherman, also known as The Sioux Chef, is on track to open the "first fully indigenous restaurant experience" in 2017.

Sherman raised nearly $149,000 on Kickstarter for his Indigenous Kitchen in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The amount was the most ever for a restaurant on the crowd-funding site.

The Oglala Sioux citizen will use the funds toward buying a building for the new establishment, the Associated Press reported. For the menu, Sherman is drawing on his own tribal traditions and also plans to incorporate foods from other indigenous nations.

“Our foods are our cultural identifier; it’s who we are,” Sherman told the AP.
