BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (KFOR) – One Native-owned, Oklahoma restaurant has made Southern Living’s list of the south’s best new restaurants of 2023.

Broken Arrow’s Nātv, as the name implies, showcases Native American cuisine, made with locally-grown ingredients sourced through other Native-owned businesses.

A descendant of the Shawnee Tribe and a member of the Cherokee Nation, veteran chef Jacque Siegfried learned how to cook from her father well before attending culinary school. Curious about her roots, she dug into indigenous histories and recipes. In 2022, she opened a restaurant in Broken Arrow to bring “Native American cuisine to the modern forefront.”
