Joseph Shawana
Acclaimed Chef Joseph Shawana is Odawa, part of the Three Fires Confederacy. Born and raised in Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Reserve in Ontario, Joseph was brought up knowing that food is life. Starting in the kitchen at the early age of 13, he learned from his mother, and quickly fell in love with authentic Indigenous cuisine. His classical French training and Aboriginal background combine to create authentic, Native American cuisine executed with world-class culinary technique.  Currently, he is a professor, the chair of Indigenous Culinary of Associated Nations, and the Indigenous culinary advisor at Ontario’s Centennial College. Joseph is also the force behind the high-end Indigenous restaurant, Kūkŭm Kitchen, which won the “Best World Cuisine” award in 2019. He was named on the list of Top Ten Chefs of Ontario, has received rave reviews in numerous publications—including The New York Times and Food & Wine—and is a sought-after voice on the emergence of Indigenous culinary around the globe. @joseph.shawana
